Here is what our experts had to say on how it will impact the learning community and what you can do to prepare.
Rupa: Hi team! In regard to Flash, what is happening on December 31, 2020?
Kenny: Adobe announced in 2017 that it is officially retiring Flash on December 31, 2020. Any Flash content that is a part of an online training course will no longer function and launch in browsers.
Rupa: Wow, this is an important change to the learning community as a whole. Can you help elaborate on why LMS admins should care about this change?
Kenny: All the training you have created in the last several years is most likely using Flash, and that means it will not function after December 31st.
Rupa: What tips do you have for the learning community to proactively prepare for and support this change?
Erin: This is also an opportune time for your team to evaluate if some of your content can be archived.
Rupa: Those are insightful tips, Kenny and Erin—thank you for sharing your expertise!
