Adobe Flash Player end-of-life - December 31 2020

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

A message from Information Systems & Technology (IST) and the Centre for Extended Learning (CEL)

On December 31, 2020, Adobe will be discontinuing support for Flash Player; most web browsers will disable and block Flash before this date. University of Waterloo materials using Flash must be converted to other technology before that time.

The Centre for Extended Learning (CEL) offers a conversion service for training materials that have been authored in Flash to any University of Waterloo department. This service includes: 

  • Evaluating current Flash-based training materials
  • Advising on AODA/accessibility compliance and mobile use
  • Conducting the conversion¬†
  • Performing quality and consistency checks

CEL has developed a considerable amount of expertise in this area as the department has been converting online course materials away from Flash since Fall 2017.

A fee will apply for this service and a detailed estimate will be provided to interested departments. Please contact Senior Production Manager, Matt Justice (matt.justice@uwaterloo.ca) to discuss how CEL can assist.
