Technology changes at quite a pace nowadays. This is usually a positive thing, although in the case of some excellent eLearning courses out there, changes in tech are having a negative impact!
Adobe Flash has been used to develop hundreds if not thousands of eLearning courses via tools such as Storyline and Captivate. The big issue is that flash will not be available by the end of 2020. This seems an age away, however people are already experiencing the negative effects of accessibility.
Accessible Everywhere Learning
Right now, if your course uses any Flash based content your learners can not access your material if they are using Microsoft Edge, Chrome or a mobile device. And in this day and age, your learners are expecting everything to be accessible everywhere. They watch TV on the go, and want to learn on the go!
Adobe are encouraging content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to a new format (normally HTML 5) that will last for many years.
