Hi, how do I access a learning platforms that runs on Flash?

 

I have seen some comments about using a previous version of chrome. That option requires you to clear your cache.

 

Has anybody found a solution to this problem?

You don't.  The learning platform has had since 2017 to update their content to remove dependencies on Flash Player.   Here's the original announcement from 2017:  https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/   You should contact the learning platform and ask them what their plan is.

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Flash forum.

This is a terrible answer.  Flash has had just as much time to fix whatever issues they're having that lead them to discontiniue Flash player, but instead of doing their due dilligence they just threw their hands in the air and gave up.  Instead of contacting the learning platform, O.P. contacted Flash because you guys are the ones with the potential to fix this issue.  You can't expect every single website that uses Flash to start over from scratch.  That is unreasonable.  You should fix whatever issues you're having with Flash so that people can continue to enjoy using it as they have for the last couple decades, rather than pulling the rug out from under all your clienteles feet.  Also -- have a little bit more professionalism.  Your answer is super curt and condescending, and people don't come to the official Adobe support forums to be talked down to.  O.P. has a valid question which you didn't even attempt to answer.  If you don't have an answer, GO AWAY.  If somebody asks you how to do something, telling them to do something else does not answer their question.  Many of these websites are defunct, and even the ones which aren't cannot be expected to rebuild themselves from the ground up.  There is a sizable demographic of people who are inconvenienced by your company's decision to arbitrarily block flash players all across the internet.  Obviously the fallout from that is you should expect people to inundate you with questions for years to come about how to mediate this giant problem you created.  Answer the questions or go away.  This is not an answer to the question that was asked.  I could've easily said "You don't -- you throw away your computer and do all your work on a typewriter instead," but I personally think it's a little obvious that O.P. wasn't looking for advice on how to do something completely different from what they asked.

Was not Apple who pulled the plug on flash when they made devices that did not support it?

Apple is to blame too.
