Is it time to Abandon Adobe Flash in eLearning Design? [Chime in]

See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

This morning while reading the latest news, I came across a CNET news article, entitled “Flash quietly re-emerges on Amazon’s Kindle Fire.” Speaking to All Things Digital in an interview published …

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

As always, RJ Jacquez is promoting the next level of interactive design, namely HTML5 instead of Flash. His blog post here is a little long (only because it’s images from Twitter of his Twitter conversation), but it really brings to life the pros and cons of full-conversion to HTML5. 


For the moment, I can’t take a side because I’m undecided. I really understand both sides of the issue. Having spoken to my developer husband about the topic in the past, I know he says that getting the desired effect is easier with Flash. I’ve been in companies that are very slow to changing over to mobile, let alone change over to utilizing HTML5. Flash is still predominant and people like it, so it’s hard to push those kinds of changes. 


What do you think? Post here, or feel free to post on RJ’s site as well.
