For nearly a quarter of a century, developers have been creating Flash based content. Today this tool is nearing its retirement. On December 31st, Flash will need to be replaced with interactive HTML5 content. As we near that looming end date, you may be feeling the stress of how to handle your last-minute eLearning conversion projects.
Running out of time and need a quick fix?
Here are some options for evaluating your existing Flash eLearning courses and picking the quickest right solution.
- Essential low interaction Flash courses: Consider recording your eLearning courses as a video output and publishing for your LMS as a quick fix option. This is a low-tech, quick hit solution that will give you the time to go back later and update and then rebuild using HTML5.
- Business critical Interactive Flash courses: You will need to extract the assets from your Flash and rebuild the eLearning courses using an HTML5 authoring tool. If you don’t have a team that can start right now, you will want to consider getting help from an outside company like TrainingPros.
- Flash courses slated for update: If the size of your catalog is manageable, you may still have time to consider rebuilding your existing eLearning courses with an HTML5 authoring tool. However, your team will need to be laser focused on the timeline and make sure SMEs hit the deadline. Consider using the quick fix option above for now to give you time to be a little less strict on the timeline.
