Why go in for Flash to HTML5 Conversion?

Legacy Course Conversions

COVID-19 has led to unprecedented training disruption. As we debate quick, efficient ways to shift training programs online, let’s not forget the legacy courses developed in Flash and older versions of authoring tools.

Converting your Flash courses to HTML5 makes them mobile-compatible and extends their reach. You can also: 

  • Redesign or rebuild courses that need updates in:
    • Existing content
    • Instructional strategy
  • Reconfigure the courses as microlearning assets

What’s the Urgency?

With Adobe discontinuing support to Flash by end of 2020, your Flash-based eLearning courses will stop playing (in all browsers). So, it is now or never for Flash to HTML5 eLearning conversion! 

Whether it’s only a few or a thousand, we will ensure your legacy courses are converted at unmatched speed, scale, and quality with our:

  • Authoring tool expertise
  • Agile processes
  • Robust Quality Assurance

You can also avail of our limited period special discounts on Flash to HTML5 conversion projects.

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 devices/platforms

Solve your compatibility issues by republishing your Flash courses with authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline 360 and Adobe Captivate 10.

Their responsive templates and HTML5 output enable anytime, anywhere access, on any device.

Update content and branding

To provide up-to-date content to learners to meet dynamic business demands, we help you: 

  • Revamp courses, making them current and accessible on any device
  • Update them to reflect your branding

Repurpose content into micro modules

Use the Flash to HTML5 conversion to transform long courses into short learning nuggets to: 

  • Cater to the modern learner
  • Improve adoption
  • Improve performance though focused short learning

Use the latest learning strategies for better outcomes

Enhance your Flash courses (with better instructional design or interactivity) based on your learners and training need (e.g., scenario-based training to training for sales reps).

Make courses look fresh by adding more contemporary visual elements.

Translate courses to reach global audiences

Translations offer your international employees consistent, technically accurate training.

Make your ‘not-so-translation-friendly’ legacy courses ready for translation by using authoring tools – even in languages with right-to-left script or double byte character sets.

What is the Best Strategy for Flash to HTML5 Conversion?

The strategy for Flash to HTML5 conversion depends 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!

The RECORD strategy is for you if your Flash-based courses: 

  • Are simple and self-running
  • Are at Bloom’s taxonomy level 1 or 2 (knowledge & comprehension)
  • Don’t require high user interaction

Record them to MP4 format which is SCORM/AICC/Tin Can compatible and can be hosted on all Learning Management Systems.

REPUBLISH Courses developed in Older Versions of Authoring Tools!

If your legacy courses were developed in older versions of authoring tools (with both Flash and HTML5 output), you can: 

  • REPUBLISH them to the newer version of the same tool
  • Make them compatible with multiple devices and browsers

You can also:

  • Enhance the courses instructionally
  • Repurpose them as a curriculum of microlearning assets in HTML5

REBUILD Courses in HTML5 Using Flash Assets!

Reuse the content and existing assets to rebuild courses in a new authoring tool for HTML5 output for cross-platform, cross-device compatibility if your Flash-based courses:

  • Were developed in obsolete software
  • Have usable media elements
Flash to HTML5 conversion service – Rebuild
Flash to HTML5 conversion service – Redesign

REDESIGN and Develop Learner-Centric Courses with HTML5 Output!

You can ‘REDESIGN’ the courses from scratch, using a new authoring tool if: 

  • The content in your Flash courses has become obsolete, needing significant edits
  • Source files are not unavailable

Using the REDESIGN strategy, you can:

What do YOU have to do to get started?
