Much before the most popular browsers officially announced that Flash player would no longer be supported, content development teams had already been on their way to find alternatives to Flash. One reason for this transition was that Flash was lacking browser compatibility, and the other prominent reason was the increasing popularity for multi-device learning – especially ‘mobile learning’.
As a result, Flash has lost its relevance as an eLearning authoring tool, and Flash eLearning to HTML5 conversion has come into the picture, with the need for legacy eLearning courses to be converted into HTML5. HTML5 is the best alternative potential web technology for eLearning courses to run across multiple devices. For HTML5, there is no need to install any additional browser plugin.
