Moodle plugin of the month – Flash Apocalypse report

The official end-of-life for Flash is December 2020, so you need to prepare for this even earlier.

While the official end-of-life for Flash is not until December 2020, its effective demise is much sooner, from mid-2019 when browser support for Flash ends. Some people are calling this ‘The Flash Apocalypse’.

If you are a Moodle administrator, it might be time to install this newly released Flash Apocalypse report, that can identify any Flash content on your Moodle site!

The report lists activities, by type, in your site that contain flash-based content.

Many SCORM and e-learning authoring tools can ‘dual publish’ with HTML5 as a fallback if Flash isn’t supported by the browser. In this report, when HTML5 content is detected it is shown as a Yes in the ‘HTML5 present’ column.

A very useful plugin, and as most Moodle administrators will not know what all the content in their Moodle site actually is, having been uploaded by teachers over the years, this report is highly recommended !
