I get it. You were no longer going to support it. It is your company. However, the impact and disruption it has caused an educational community that sometimes relies on this player working is huge. Really really really wish we didn't have a pandemic but more so that you would have found a way to not let this disruption happen. So many of the programs that only work with flash are gone. So many great things that educators had built are not longer functioning.

Thanks for your feedback.   For completeness, here's the original EOL announcement from 2017:  https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/ It also links to the roadmaps of the major western browser developers, all of whom are ending support for browser plug-ins as a general class of software in tandem with the retirement of Flash Player.

You don't think its more about the people using flash for education, how did they let this happen when they knew about it since 2017?

Some of those programs were created by educators. I’m sure they were teaching.

Thanks for your feedback.

It also links to the roadmaps of the major western browser developers, all of whom are ending support for browser plug-ins as a general class of software in tandem with the retirement of Flash Player.

 

Here's the consumer FAQ:

Here's the enterprise FAQ, should your district be interested in licensing and distributing a maintained version of Flash Player for managed computers from our support partner HARMAN: 

https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/enterprise-end-of-life.html

 

Finally, there are projects around that might be useful for keeping some of that educational content alive.  As an example, Ruffle.js is an active project that's attempting to keep a large swath of Flash content alive using patent-free technology and native browser functionality (i.e. plug-ins no longer required).  You might point those content providers to Ruffle.js to see if they'd be open to exploring it as a solution. 

 

Alternatively, you could talk to other educators and find or develop alternative content that satisfies your lesson plans. 

 

Good luck!

Everyone had 3-1/2 years to prepare for the end of Flash Player.  Talk to your school district and other teachers about obtaining alternative course materials that are not Flash-based.
