How to Add Adobe Flash e-Learning to Mobile

  • IPhone using Flash e-Learning

There is a perceived wisdom in e-learning from both developers, designers and managers alike that online learning needs to be in HTML 5 to run on an Android or Apple IOS device. This is the overlying opinion of 99.9% of the e-learning industry, which is a shame since it could not be further from the truth.

Firstly, Adobe Flash, despite the bad press given to it by Apple over the years, is a really good design tool. There is nothing that matches it for producing really quick and impressive animations. There are numerous designers working in e-learning who have learnt some really useful skills with the software and built up a library of assets which are now being threatened with the bin due to the march of HTML 5.

Well the good news is that Flash assets can still be used on mobile devices (search for e-learning on the app stores - 20% of the top 50 are made using Jackdaw Cloud with imported Flash elements.)  Jackdaw does this by using it's own Flash transfer engine which does not rely on the mobile device to run Adobe Flash.  Furthermore since the learning has been downloaded as an App it does not rely on large bandwidth or even internet access to run courses.  

So register with Jackdaw Cloud e-learning authoring system and start importing your Flash assets. They will live again on your mobile device soon.


Alternatively to download a number of completely free e-learning Apps, search for "e-Learning WMB" on your Apple or Android App stores.
