- Unlike Flash-based legacy eLearning content, which are not supported by modern mobile devices such as iOS, HTML5 can make courses easily accessible on iPads, iPhones and other latest mobile devices because of its compatibility with these advanced devices and browsers.
- The greatest advantage with HTML5 is that almost all the major authoring tools available in market produce HTML5 content which are compatible with latest mobile devices and compatible browsers.
- Furthermore, unlike Flash, HTML5 requires no plugins for accessing videos, audio and interactivities in the browsers compatible with it. Further this code supports exciting features like video tags, canvas elements, audio tag and scalable vector graphics (SVG) content, it is now very easy to include rich multimedia and graphical content on the web.
- Flexible content, on-demand, just-in-time training, all these forms could be effectively delivered through HTML5 content.
- Adopting HTML5 as a delivery format, along with the use of website development techniques such as Responsive Web Design, enables the content delivery on any platform, browser, or device. Responsive web design is a design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
- HTML5 content could be easily maintained in a single repository, and display the right content to the right user at the right time on any device.
- In summary, HTML5 plus Responsive Web Design helps to present the legacy content to all modern browsers and mobile devices.
- Your organization might be sitting on an untapped treasure trove of potential revenue. Corporate content assets (e.g., technical user manuals, customer support knowledge bases, internal bulletins and training materials) hold potential value to your customers.
- However, most departments responsible for creating and maintaining this valuable content often work in “silos” and do not share content with each other.
- Opportunities exist to consolidate and easily repackage corporate content into new content assets and products for which customers are willing to pay!
- Converting this content into HTML5 and delivering it in the context of an enterprise app or an interactive eBook, enables companies to easily sell content on a subscription basis or through an eCommerce solution.
- In summary, HTML5 interactive eBooks and apps can provide new revenue streams.
- Adobe Flash is being dropped from browsers much earlier than we anticipated. Google will be phasing out support for Adobe’s Flash software by the end of 2016. Already Apple, Microsoft and Mozilla have taken steps to stop Flash running. Except on a few select sites, your users will have to activate Flash manually.
- Conventional Flash-based training courses, which are developed to be run on desktops, might not be suitable to meet the just-in-time training requirement in today’s context.
- IntraIntel will ensure easy migration of legacy eLearning courses built in Flash to HTML5. This is a highly flexible and agile solution to migrate legacy eLearning courses easily for HTML5 delivery.
- First thing we do about the project is scoping exercise. We identify right approach using following process
- Conversion Approach: Segregate the content which need just technology update or complete redesign.
- Recent courses: These may need only technology uplift…so could be converted into HTML5 using readily available tools – Minimum cost per file conversion
- Compliance courses: The migration cycle would involve textual as well as visual enhancements before conversion – Intermediate cost per file conversion
- Legacy courses: Re-use the content but completely re-design – Instructional Design and Visual Design – and code in HTML5 from ground up: High cost per file conversion.
- Arrive at a priority list of courses to be converted from Flash to HTML5: Begin the migration exercise by picking a small number of courses, migrate, and perform a user testing for the feedback. Assess if the impact you had envisioned is being created (that is, better learning experience for the learners at optimum cost).
- Template based conversion: Repository of templates will ensure legacy Flash content to HTML5 migration into aesthetically appealing, learner experience, cost-effective content with modern layouts and designs.
- Test, test and Re-test! : We check the pilot content for proper delivery on all latest HTML5 compatible browsers, Learning Management Systems and most of the modern mobile devices both iOS and Android.
- Understand the pros and cons of Flash vs HTML5 design (the trade-off between learning design capability that Flash offers and what HTML5 can offer): The kind of user experiences that HTLML5-based designs offer are different from the Flash-based approach. So we take judgment call between exact conversion against trade-offs in lieu of cost involved.
- Right authoring tool: There are multiple options to choose from. For adaptive or completely responsive design capability, Adobe Captivate is adequate while for rapid content development Articulate Storyline, iSpring, Lectora are suitable. But for accurate conversions ground up HTML5 development is inevitable
It is the service to convert Flash content that depends on Flash Player plug-in to get displayed in any browser. These Flash contents can be converted to HTML5 which is independent of browser plug-in and mobile friendly as well.
This is very useful for those who have Flash based content like Flash sites, games, apps, eLearning objects, Flash banners and whatever content that needs Flash player to deliver content over internet.
Yes if one wants to increase their customer reach and do not want to lose the Mobile audience. According to recent survey, Smart Phone users that use internet are exponentially increasing. In order to reach these Mobile users, Flash to HTML5 is need of the hour.
Yes definitely. Flash player can deliver content properly to desktop PCs only. So, the mobile users cannot view the Flash content. Whereas HTML5 version gets displayed in both PCs and Mobile and one need not worry about any customer not able to view the content.
Some tools claim they have the automatic feature. This is possible for only small SWF files where there are no interactions. However, manual intervention needs to be there at some point of time to make the converted HTML5 version work properly.
Yes. No matter how complex the Flash app or game may be. It can be converted to HTML5.
Yes. No matter in what architecture or framework the Flash content is developed. We have the expertise to convert it to equivalent HTML5 version.
Yes. Big lengthy animations with huge graphics can be converted to HTML5. We need to optimize the graphics, animations & sounds for HTML5 version so that it won’t consume too much of Mobile resources.
Yes. Rather than conversion it would need to be recreated in HTML5/CSS3 to bring the same look and feel as in Flex app. In general, Flex to HTML5 takes more time compared to Flash to HTML5.
We keep an eye on the performance right from the beginning of the conversion process. We optimize all the images, animations and sounds so that there is no memory leak in Mobile devices. At the end, the converted HTML5 version will have optimal performance similar to its counterpart Flash version.
Yes. We make sure there is no difference. One can hardly find any differences between Flash and HTML5 content.
Although there are many third party tools available for conversion. We mostly use Flash CC, Edge Animate. In some cases, we recreate the Flash content in pure HTML5/CSS3.
It mainly depends on how the Flash file is developed. There are many factors involved.
If it is created in old Flash versions like AS1 or AS2 then there will be more effort.
If it is complex app/game developed using any architecture or framework then it will take more time.
For a Flex app, it needs to be recreated in HTML5/CSS3.
Due to all these, we don’t have any generic time and cost for conversion process. We usually ask for the Flash/Flex source files for review and then provide quote based on that.
Our policy is to make sure to have regular communication with the client. Once the development is started, we provide periodic progress updates so that client can review the work and monitor what is going on. Also, we don’t wait for the complete delivery of product to get reviews and feedbacks from client. The client can provide feedbacks during the course of development so that it can be implemented at an earlier stage itself instead of waiting for end result. This makes the process simple and reduces time taken for final deliverables.
Our policy is to deliver a complete product after multiple in-house reviews and feedbacks from client. There is 3 Months warranty for any unexpected issues that arise after complete delivery.
Very simple. Just Contact Us and we will take care of the rest.
