Scenario: Adobe Flash reaches end-of-life
Let’s take the example of – none other than – eLearning development.
- Until six years ago, the majority of eLearning solutions would choose Adobe Flash as its platform to create eLearning courses. In the context of the latest technological advancements, it became a need – in fact mandatory – for online content to be developed rapidly and to be played in all types of gadgets/ mobile devices to reach a wider audience.
- Primarily with its non-compatibility issues with the latest browsers and other gadgets, Adobe Flash gave way to the rapid eLearning authoring tools. Now, in the post-Flash era, the Learning and Development departments are working on converting old Flash courses into HTML5.
- Assuming, if the employees of an eLearning company do not update themselves technically in the direction of rapid eLearning, it would certainly affect their performance and subsequently, the profits of the organization.

There is every chance that they perform tasks with a grumbling attitude, lacking motivation as they feel that their skillset is not updated and is not matching with the market requirements.

– improves their overall performance,
– reduces their working effort and task-completion time, thus augmenting their confidence levels to compete with the market
