Adobe is ending its support of Adobe Flash at the end of 2020. This will impact most of the courses currently in LMS, as well as new courses currently in development (if you are using the older software that relies on Flash).
What does this mean for you?
To ensure that your courses continue to work after December 30, 2020, you will need to republish any existing courses which use Flash to HTML5. The good news is, it's an easy fix. For more information, please review the LMS Resources.
