Convert Your Flash Courses to HTML5

Make them multi-device compatible!

Renew Legacy Courses with the Latest Authoring Tools

With Adobe discontinuing support to Flash by end of 2020, your Flash-based eLearning courses will stop playing (in all browsers). Convert these courses developed in Flash or in obsolete authoring tools into HTML5 so that they run on multiple devices, and the training dollars you invested in them aren’t wasted.  Also, use this opportunity to redesign or rebuild courses that need updates – in terms of content or instructional approach.

Convert Your Flash Courses to HTML5

What do YOU get When you Opt for Flash to HTML5 Conversion?

A lot! We:

Make courses compatible across multiple devices & platforms

Overcome compatibility issues of your Flash-based courses by republishing them with authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline 360 and Adobe Captivate 10. Their responsive templates and HTML5 output enable your learners to access courses on their preferred devices, anytime, anywhere.

Update content and branding for better connect

You need up-to-date content to meet dynamic business demands head-on. We revamp your courses with CARE, making them current, able to play on any device, relevant, and engaging.  We also update your courses to reflect your branding, building instant connect with employees.

Repurpose content into micro modules for improved adoption

Most learners prefer short courses! Use this opportunity of Flash to HTML5 conversion to transform long courses into short learning nuggets to help your learners focus on individual tasks to improve performance.

Use the latest learning strategies for better learning outcomes

Enhance your Flash courses (that may not be instructionally sound or lack interactivity) based on your learner profile and training need (e.g., need training for sales reps? Try scenario-based training with better assessments.). Also, get rid of the dated look by adding more contemporary visual elements.

Translate courses to reach global audiences

Translations offer your global learners consistent, technically accurate training. Make your ‘not-so-translation-friendly’ legacy courses translation-ready by converting them using authoring tools, for your international employees – even in languages with right-to-left script or double byte character sets.

How do you Choose the Best Strategy for Flash to HTML5 Conversion?

The choice of strategy for Flash to HTML5 conversion is based on the importance of the training, its technical complexity, required engagement, and availability of source files.

You can choose from the 4 ‘R’s:

RECORD, when you don’t have the Source Files!

If your Flash-based courses are simple, at Bloom’s taxonomy level 1 or 2 (knowledge & comprehension), and don’t require high user interaction, you can still salvage them – by recording them to MP4 format which is SCORM/AICC/Tin Can compatible and can be hosted on all Learning Management Systems. The ‘Record’ method is ideal when your existing courses are self-running and your main objective is to help learners remember and recall basic facts and understand concepts.

REPUBLISH Courses developed in Older Versions of Authoring Tools!

You can quickly upgrade courses developed in older versions of authoring tools (with both Flash and HTML5 output) and republish them to the newer version of the same tool, making them compatible with multiple devices and browsers.

When converting Flash courses to HTML5, take the opportunity to enhance them instructionally or repurpose them as a curriculum of microlearning assets in HTML5, ensuring SCORM compatibility.

REBUILD Courses in HTML5 Using Flash Assets!

If your Flash-based courses were developed in obsolete software, but have usable media elements, reuse the content and the existing assets to rebuild courses in a new authoring tool for HTML5 output for cross-platform, cross-device compatibility.

REDESIGN and Develop Learner-Centric Courses with HTML5 Output!

In case the content in your Flash courses has become obsolete and needs significant edits, or if source files are unavailable, you can choose to ‘Redesign’ the courses from scratch, using a new authoring tool.

Using this methodology, you can include new information in the courses, use new-age interactions available in modern authoring tools, or leverage new approaches such as microlearning.

What do YOU have to do to get started?

Not much! Here’s a quick to-do list for Flash to HTML5 conversions:


Go through all your online learning resources and gather all Flash-based courses and courses with Flash assets. Tip: You can identify Flash courses by their extension .swf or .flv.


Organize your flash assets according to availability of source files, and whether you have complete courses for conversion or just the media elements.

Not all your Flash-based courses will need to be converted (some might have become obsolete or irrelevant). So, choose the courses you want converted and archive the rest.


Prioritize Flash to HTML5 conversions according to the urgency, so that you have a clear action plan. For example, a course for new hires may take precedence over one on Emotional Intelligence when you anticipate massive recruitments.


Lastly, choose the Flash to HTML5 conversion strategy that best suits the situation and need – Record, Republish, Rebuild, or Redesign.
