D2L – Adobe Flash End of Life
Adobe has announced that Flash will no longer be a distributed and supported product as of the end of 2020. D2L will also be ending support for Flash at the end of the year.
D2L users should prepare themselves for the removal of Flash ahead of the End of Life date. Any objects that were created using Flash should be converted to a different format such as MP4. There are many options available for this type of conversion.
D2L recommends validating that no Flash objects remain in active courses moving forward to avoid any disruption to users. Materials such as SCORM objects, Video Recordings, and Links within Content Files are potential areas where Flash could have been used. The upcoming Spring and Summer semesters are a great time to evaluate your courses to ensure they are using the most up-to-date technologies.
If you have any questions about converting Flash objects to other formats, please contact Dr. Tim Oneal at (931) 221-6484 or
