Let’s take a look at what the webinar is set to offer you.
Adobe Flash Phase-Out: What the Webinar Offers
Flash vs. HTML5
The world knew it was time to finally switch to open-web standards when Steve Jobs put an end to Apple’s long-standing relationship with Adobe Flash in 2010, citing multiple reasons, including incompatibility with iOS devices. With this, technology giants such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Mozilla also began their migration process.
When it comes to eLearning, your Flash-based courses will:
- Not be incompatible with mobile devices – smartphones/ tablets
- Not function on most modern operating systems – iOS, Android, Windows
- Not run on modern-day browsers – Mozilla, Chrome
However, HTML5 fills in all these gaps! It is much more robust and allows for future-proofing your training initiatives. How?
Join the webinar to find out!
The Hidden Benefits of Flash to HTML5 Conversion
While you might be aware about the obvious benefits of Flash eLearning to HTML5 conversion – extended cross-platform browser support, mobile learning compatibility, compliance with latest technical standards, and more – there are other benefits that are not so well known!
To give you an example, Flash eLearning to HTML5 conversions will provide an opportunity for you to incorporate new-age learning strategies. Now, what are these new-age learning strategies and what more can you do during the conversion process?
Find all your answers in the session from our in-house experts!
The 4 Rs of Flash to HTML5 Conversion
As I have mentioned before, converting Flash to HTML5 is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. The process depends on:
- Whether or not the source files for the Flash courses are available.
- Whether the course needs updating (instructional design, visuals, and content).
- Whether the Flash courses need to be published in a new authoring tool.
Whatever the requirement, the 4R strategy of Flash to HTML5 conversion takes care of it all. The 4Rs (Record, Republish. Rebuild, and Redesign) are four tried and tested strategies for conversion based on the requirements for conversion and the availability (or not) of source files and media elements.
If you’re wondering what are these 4 ‘R’s and when and how you should leverage them, you know what to do! Join the webinar!
5-Step Pre-Conversion Checklist
The webinar will also take you through the basic prerequisites for Flash eLearning to HTML5 conversion, and provides a 5-step pre-conversion checklist to help you embark on the conversion journey. Here’s a preview of the checklist.
- Collecting and prioritizing old Flash based courses for relevance and validity for conversion – how to collect and prioritize courses for conversion.
- Gathering source files –which source files you need to look for and what to do when they are not available.
- Choosing the right authoring tool – which authoring tool is the right one for you, based on your specific purpose and business needs.
- Choosing a relevant conversion strategy – to decide on the best strategy from the 4Rs I told you about.
……………….. and a lot more!
Reasons to Outsource Your Conversion Project
Last, but not the least, the webinar will also talk about why it is a good idea to outsource your conversion requirements, instead of doing it in-house. Unless you have a dedicated and experienced in-house team working on the conversion, it makes more sense to outsource to a reliable vendor, with expertise and ability to handle large volumes.
Let the webinar open your eyes to the pros and cons of developing in-house, versus outsourcing.
