FLASH TO HTML5
Adobe Flash Player has been a favorite for eLearning developers for decades and most probably many of your eLearning courses currently contain Flash components. With the ever-growing capabilities of HTML5 to support multimedia and graphical content, Adobe announced end of life for Flash Player on Dec 31, 2020. Planning to convert legacy courses from Flash to HTML5 before the deadline will ensure that your learning and development strategies continue to effectively train your workforce. Flash to HTML5 conversion is achievable, has many benefits, and does not have to be a long process.
examples of our work
LEGO partnered with AllenComm to reimagine their onboarding training to reduce seat time, and increase employee competency and confidence. The flash course was converted to a fully responsive, immersive HTML5 learning experience. The new course had to improve the current content by revamping the previous course’s design and UX, while maintaining the existing instructional integrity of the previous course.
Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) sought to convert their flash training into HTML5 by creating an engaging learning experience to meet their learner accessibility requirements. The goal of the training was to expand their employees understanding of potential concerns and hazards in their industry and reduce risk.
"AllenComm has a unique ability to create clarity and focus in the midst of ambiguity. Because of this they have become a trusted advisor to me and my team very quickly. I cannot imagine tackling this body of work without them. I cannot recommend them enough.”

There are 2 HTML5 conversion approaches we recommend:
Rapid conversion. This approach keeps proven content intact while updating Flash-based courses to responsive HTML5. This extends the shelf life of content, increasing accessibility, and refreshing the look and feel of the course. Rapid conversion is most appropriate for typical course design without immersive visual themes or complex, custom simulations.
Re-design and re-build. For courses with highly customized or complex content, or where content has changed significantly, this may be the only solution. This approach is best suited for learning experiences that support organizational change efforts.
Which approach is best will depend largely on the design and content of your eLearning courses, as well as on your budget and timeline.
