Adobe Flash End-of-Life

As of December 2020, Adobe Flash Player has reached end-of-life.  Adobe has announced that they are blocking Flash content from running in Flash Player effective 1/12/21.  Affected files (e.g., .flv, .swf) could be:

  • Flash content you created yourself 
  • Flash files imported/copied from another course or source 
  • Links to external sites containing Flash content  
  • Interactive content imported via SCORM packages 
  • Rendered exports from content creation tools (e.g., Camtasia) 

Note: Flash content may reside in your content collection or be deployed in other areas in UNM Learn, such as embedded content in tools (e.g., quiz questions).  

For courses that have Flash content (e.g., .flv, .swf), instructors will need to remove or replace that content with a supported format, such as HTML5. When creating any new content be sure not to export it into any Flash content file types.

In case it is helpful, UNM has a partnership with Adobe and you may qualify to get a free or discounted rate for Adobe Creative Campus, which includes some content creation tools. For more information, please visit the UNM Creative Campus homepage.
