    The Death of Flash

    Converting flash content to HTML5

    With Adobe finally fully retiring Flash at the end of 2020, organisations with existing content developed in Flash need to be planning now to either update or replace it.

    The natural successor for Flash is HTML5 and you’ll be pleased to hear that it is possible to convert content fairly easily between the two. Rather than viewing this as a bit of a chore, think of it as an opportunity to review and update old content as well as bringing you the best of new technology to better engage your learners.

    Out with the old, in with the new

    Updating or replacing legacy learning content

    Converting content from Flash content to HTML5 means it will work on more devices (including mobile), and it is much easier to make HTML5 courses accessible and adhere to WCAG guidelines. Not only that, you’ll have the reassurance that you are future-proofing your content by moving it to a standard that is based on the way that web browsers work rather than requiring a 3rd party plug-in.

    Here at Kineo, we’ve helped many organisations convert Flash content to HTML5 using our authoring tool Adapt, tweaking the learning to bring it up-to-date. Alternatively, we have the expertise to create updated courses for you from scratch or can provide complete off-the-shelf solutions from Kineo Courses. Whatever is right for you and your budget, you can trust us to work with you to get it sorted.

    How Kineo can help

    How To Convert Existing Flash-Based Courses To The HTML5 Format?

    • Use Adapt to make learning more responsive

      HTML5 opens up more opportunities than Flash did. We can help you identify what devices to optimise for, create responsive learning and mobile learning, and test it before you deploy the updated course to your learners.

    • Switching Flash content for an off-the-shelf offer

      Our off-the-shelf elearning courses can replace outdated flash content instantly, with 100s of courses ready to use right out of the box. Deployed via your own learning management systems or through the Kineo Courses Learning Portal, we have something to suit.

    • We can do all the hard work for you or help you do it yourself

      Kineo can completely remake or update your outdated Flash course, or you could also do some or all of the Flash conversions in-house using templates we make specifically for your learning needs.

    • Identify the right format for learning delivery

      Technologies and approaches to learning have changed, so it’s worth considering whether a like-for-like conversion, a completely new approach or a different format would provide a better learning experience.

    • Defining strategy and conversion requirements

      We’ll help you evaluate your Flash content, identify if a course just needs a simple conversion or could really use a refresh to have more impact.

    • Authoring tool selection

      Kineo can help identify what authoring tool is best for your learning needs and budget. We can provide you with licences to the leading tools as well as access to Kineo’s Adapt authoring tool.
