Overview

All of us have experienced a golden era of Flash-based animations, and globally the world accepted it for developing learning experience, E-Learning, animations, videos, games, and simulations. Nevertheless, everything comes to an end. With the changing technology, multiple browsers, and gadgets. Now, it has become a necessity to convert the legacy flash assets to newer technologies.

Restrictions, and end of Flash player by 31st December 2020, has generated an immediate need to convert, and migrate all the legacy-based flash assets to either a video format or HTML5 mobile responsive content.

Dorado Learning is an Education Technology company and has the experience to convert flash-based content to video or HML5 responsive courses.

The major challenge with the organizations, universities, and institutions is, how to convert several existing flash assets to HTML5 driven responsive designs? Dorado Learning provides a unique process of development and delivery side by side, backed by a detailed project plan.

Why should I convert my assets from Flash to HTML5?

Flash will be discontinued after 31st December 2020. That means your existing assets will stop working or playing in any of the browsers. Microsoft has already announced the end of support for flash player, whereas, google chrome never uses flash as a default player. In the year January 2021, flash will be fully removed from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.

Strategies we use to convert Flash to HTML5

Use Cases

We don’t need flash source files or the FLA’s. We need to check with your SWF files, and if they are simple and without any interactions, then the solution is to convert them to an MP4 format. We have in-house developed flash to MP4 conversion tool. Through the process of converting the files, we can also join multiple SWF files to a single MP4 for uninterrupted learning. Now, these files will be compatible with all the browsers, and work across all the devices. What else can be done?
    Add a watermark to your files and secure them from unauthorized usage. Make the files compliant to SCORM / AICC / Tin Can Host them on any LMS and access through any device.
When the SWF files are created dynamically through a platform or software and then compiled to the LMS or a learning platform for E-Learning purpose. In this scenario, we suggest that the platform need an upgrade or the SWF files have to be recreated either in a PDF format or refurbished using HTML coding to deliver a multi-device format. Through this process, you can get the exact hotspots, images, videos, text-art, and hyperlinks as placed and visible in the previous version of SWF files. However, they are now in HTML5 or a PDF format.
When you have multiple simulations developed in Flash with high-end interactions, and you need the exact look and feel of the simulation in HTML5, the only process is to use the same graphics from the simulations, re-engineer them, and publish the simulations in HTML5. This process will make the files consistent and end user will not be surprised to see something new all of a sudden. All the instances, and interactivity’s will have to be reprogrammed with a exact graphical HTML5 output. Dorado Learning has an experience in converting more than 3000 flash based simulation to HTML5 for one of the well known online tutoring company in the USA. For demonstration, contact us right now.
If your courses are developed in the previous version of authoring tools using flash and HTML5 both, then this is a good news, and now you have an opportunity to get them re-engineered in the newer version of same or a new authoring tool. Infact you can modify these courses instructionally, better interactivity’s, better presentation, and also break them into micro E-Learning nuggets, if required. Connect with us and we will present you a strategy after learning more about your existing files. You get new refreshing templates, and a cross platform and multi device compatibility for all the courses.
