With the upcoming demise of Flash I am having to future proof legacy work created in Lectora, replacing SWF with HTML. Here’s the steps I am taking

I always appreciate the efforts of organisations such as Trivantis to reach out to the e-learning community and offer webinars such as this to increase my knowledge as an instructional designer and developer.
