All of us have experienced a golden era of Flash-based animations, and globally the world accepted it for developing learning experiences, 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 the end of Flash player by 31st December 2020, have 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 development and delivery process side by side, backed by a detailed project plan.

Why convert my assets from Flash to HTML5?

Flash is Discontinued After 31st December 2020. That means 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 entirely removed from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.


Strategies we use to convert Flash to HTML5

Use Cases

We do not need flash source files or FLA's. We need to check with SWF files, and if they are simple and without any interactions, then the solution is to convert them to an MP4 format. We have an in-house developed Flash to MP4 conversion tool. We can also join multiple SWF files to a single MP4 for uninterrupted learning by converting the files. 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 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.
The SWF files are created dynamically through a platform or software and then compiled to the LMS or a learning platform for E-Learning purposes. In this scenario, we suggest that the platform needs 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. Exact hotspots, images, videos, text-art, and hyperlinks as placed and visible in the previous version of SWF files through this process. However, they are now in HTML5 or PDF format.
When multiple simulations are developed in Flash with high-end interactions and 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 the end-user will not be surprised to see something new all of a sudden. All the instances and interactivity need reprogramming with an exact graphical HTML5 output. Dorado Learning has converted more than 3000 flash-based simulations to HTML5 for one of the USA's well-known online tutoring companies. For demonstration, contact us right now.
If courses are developed in the previous version of authoring tools using Flash and HTML5 both, this is a piece of good news, and now there is an opportunity to get them re-engineered in the newer version of the same or a new authoring tool. These course modifications of instruction, better interactivity, better presentation, and break them into micro E-Learning nuggets, if required. Connect with us, and we will present a strategy after learning more about the existing files. Get new refreshing templates and cross-platform and multi-device compatibility for all the courses.
Once upgraded, assets and courses to a cross-platform and multi-device format, this is also the right time to get them translated into different languages for global human capital. Dorado Learning is an expert in translating content in more than 50+ international languages.
