How to Convert Flash-Based Websites to HTML5 Right Now!

Hurix Digital

Over the years, Adobe Flash-ActionScript and HTML-JavaScript-CSS based development have been used as two of the main approaches for websites and other front-end web-based applications. Many devices do not support Flash websites. A Flash-based website affects your search rankings.

An Overview of HTML5

Integrated Learnings

Apple's recent refusal to support Flash is the latest of many headaches web developers have had to endure as the web has matured but standards have been slow to respond. I mentioned this to a Flash developer at lunch today and I could see the frustration in his eyes wondering how he's going to meet the needs of his customers who use iPads. Standardizing these headaches so that web development is more consistant across all web-based devices is the goal of HTML5.

The Demise of the Flash Player – What Do I Do Now?

Adobe Captivate

On July 25, 2017, Adobe made the following announcement : Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats. This announcement has a major impact on any organization which has e-learning courses published to run in Adobe Flash player. Some older courses were built with text only and no audio.

Since audio is almost a necessity for eLearning, “How do I play audio in Adobe Edge Animate files?” So let’s use Edge Commons for our eLearning audio.

Illumen Group

Move from Flash to HTML5 – and Still Keep Your Super Powers! Last July, Adobe announced that Flash, the ubiquitous, super-powered website and elearning authoring tool will be phased out by the end of 2020. Popular web browsers have already discussed their plans to no longer support the Flash plugin. At this point, there’s very little that Flash can do that HTML5 can’t handle.

Want to Give Your Legacy E-learning Courses a Make-Over? Think HTML5

CommLab India

Legacy courses are courses developed in Flash, Swishmax, Shift tool, Dreamweaver, HTML and earlier versions of rapid authoring tools, which were prevalent before the advent of HTML5.

Multimedia experiences growing stronger in HTML5

Aptara

Multimedia experiences growing stronger in HTML5. The movement away from using Flash in both internal and external content by businesses has been slowed by one important factor: This language has been seen as the primary distribution method for rich multimedia such as audio and video. This attachment to multimedia means businesses were waiting for a viable alternative way to send out their multimedia communications - and it appears they have received one in the form of HTML5.
