ADOBE CONNECT SUPPORT UPDATE
Due to Adobe’s announcement to “End of Life” Flash in 2020, most major players in the tech industry are pre-emptively ending Flash support in their products. This includes the most popular and widely used web browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Apple Safari.
Since online learning relies heavily on these web browsers, the Office of Online Learning and Academic Technology (OLAT) will not support any Flash-dependent content after May 16, 2018 (end of spring semester). This includes all content created with Adobe Connect web conferencing software.
Any relevant Adobe Connect academic content will be re-encoded to an MP4 file and archived. No existing Adobe Connect academic content will be deleted.
Following ITS’s lead, OLAT recommends using WebEx for all future web conferences.
