What the End of Adobe Flash Means for Storyline 1, Storyline 2, Studio ’09, or Studio ’13
We want to make sure everyone in the E-Learning Heroes community is aware that Adobe will disable Flash as of December 31, 2020. If you use Storyline 1, Storyline 2, Studio ‘09, or Studio ‘13 to create or update content, Adobe’s decision to disable Flash has important implications for you. Because authoring in Storyline 1, Storyline 2, Studio ‘09, and Studio ‘13 is dependent on Adobe Flash, you’ll no longer be able to author content with these apps so we will no longer be supporting them after December 31, 2020. And, any content you’ve published to Flash with these apps won’t work after this date. To make sure that your content keeps working, you will need to republish it to HTML5.
Let’s walk through a few resources we’ve pulled together that can help you prepare for the end of Adobe Flash.
- Once Adobe disables the Flash Player, you might not be able to use Storyline 1, Storyline 2, Studio ‘09, or Studio ‘13 reliably and we will no longer support them. Learn more about what to expect in How the End of Flash Will Impact Your Authoring Experience.
- If you have previously published projects created with Storyline 1, Storyline 2, Studio ‘09, and Studio ‘13, you’ll need to republish them to HTML5. Both Articulate 360 (which includes Storyline 360 and Studio 360) and Storyline 3 generate HTML5 output which works in all modern web browsers. Learn more about how your Articulate courses will work in, How to Make Sure Your Articulate Courses Work after the End of Flash. And get organized for updating your Flash-based courses using the tips and the free download included in 4 Simple Steps for Updating Your Flash-Based Courses.
