The End of Flash-Based Learning Content Isn’t Coming – It’s Here
Published: September 22, 2016
Do you have training content created in older versions of authoring tools? That content was specifically intended for desktop or laptop viewing, and those tools published the content in Flash, often within a SCORM wrapper. These courses will no longer work – and the browsers are ending support now, beginning with Chrome.
In August of last year, the content team at Tribridge hosted a webinar concerning the expected phase-out of Flash support on the major browsers. Now, Chrome has just announced a more definitive plan for dropping Flash usage in September of this year. Read the Chrome blog post announcing the plan.
Our "Avoid the Flash Dance: Planning for the End of Flash-Based Content" webinar attracted registrations from over 500 learning professionals, and produced a stream of inquiries from training departments concerned about libraries of Flash-based content in a world where Flash is no longer supported.
If you have Flash-based content but missed the webinar, view it now. With Chrome's announcement and September looming, now is the time to see how this change will affect you.
As always, Tribridge's content consultants can help guide you through this transition period. We're here to help.
