Flash is Dead.

Earlier this week TechCrunch posted Farewell to Flash, an article bidding adieu to the clunky, slow and problematic Adobe Flash video. The article does a great job of summarizing Flash’s demise and what a Flash-free world will mean for all of us. At Learnkit, we had the foresight to make the switch to HTML5 years ago so we could be more agile in our elearning development, and haven’t looked back since.

 

Our rapid elearning development approach enables us to efficiently and effectively deliver high quality custom elearning to our clients. We were early adopters of HTML5 technology because our focus on creating beautiful, interactive user experiences for learners was something Flash couldn’t support.

 

We stopped using Flash around the same time Steve Jobs published his “Thoughts on Flash letter. We simultaneously halted the production of Flash videos when we saw the limitations it imposed on mobile learning, the high level of energy consumption and potential security risks. Furthermore, Flash really hindered our nimble project management philosophy due to time-consuming bug fixes, updates and maintenance. The switch to HTML5 meant we could decrease development time, while increasing value for our clients.

 

Flash is finally dead – will you be attending Flash’s funeral?
