For years, Adobe Flash was the uncrowned king of e-learning development software. Flash fails to meet this requirement as it is incompatible with most of these mobile devices and modern browsers. Another disadvantage of Flash is that it takes a long time (several weeks and even months) to develop online courses. Without making it too complicated, I’ll only focus on their capabilities such as support for simulations , animations , audio/video , and mobile support.

Experiencing eLearning

I don’t find developing software simulations to be particularly rewarding, for example, because there often isn’t a ton of creativity. A: I wouldn’t learn Flash right now. The learning curve is too steep, and within a few years I think most work will be in HTML5. Most Flash e-learning now is done with rapid tools anyway. Usually if the Flash work requires a programmer, there’s a separate team for that.
