It can be challenging to convert online courses developed in Flash to HTML5, especially if you have a lot of courses with Flash components. Flash to HTML5 conversion can be a time-consuming process when dealing with files that have not been touched for years. Files could be corrupt or outdated, and courses need to be updated.
Find out how to handle the Flash to html5 conversion process following these simple steps.
Figure out and prioritize
Go through all your courses and find out which of the courses need to convert from Flash to HTML5. If you are unsure if a course is developed in Flash, then right-click on the course and see if a Flash menu pops up. This means that the course is using Adobe Flash Player and needs to be converted to HTML5. The courses should also be prioritized; the most important ones and time-sensitive courses should be on top of the list.
Decide what conversion level each course requires
Generally, there are two types of conversion:
Convert the content: This simply involves taking the assets from existing courses and converting them in HTML5 format. This is probably going to be the easiest and cheapest option. It will also take less time but, again this depends on whether or not you have all the course asset files on hand (Source files).
Update the course: You can take the opportunity to update the courses with the latest eLearning trends and designs. Updating the visual style or content may benefit outdated courses.
Evaluate opportunities to improve courses
You need to plan an instructional designer or developer to choose which parts of the courses can be enhanced:
Branding (Logo, colors, fonts, layout, etc.)
You should involve all the stakeholders in the process to get their inputs and suggestions to make the process smoother. The stakeholders can be the HR instructional designers, Finance, Trainers, Managers, etc.
