Flash as a IT security concern
Good morning everyone!
I'm new to the e-learning content development scene and have been learning a lot from this forum about developing modules for clients. However, I have come across some client requirements that limits certain aspects of development.
Some clients have expressed that they do not want flash in their module due to IT security concerns. Now, we can easily fulfill this request by not using any .swf files at all in the module, and use simple animations, graphics and videos for the module. However, the real issue arises when we publish the file as a scorm package and upload it to the lms. This draws 2 questions.
1) The package itself contains some type of story.swf file, will this affect the IT security requirement in any way? Could we just delete or exclude it?
2) Our team suggested editing the package so that the lms loads the index_lms_html5 file by default. I would prefer not using the html5 format as the animations are not really properly processed and displayed. Would the use of the index_lms file somehow fail the flash requirement?
I know it sounds abit complicated, but if any technical guys or users can relate with this experience do let me know.
