I heard that Flash will be shut down in 2020. After that, will Flash-created content become unavailable on the web after that? There are a lot of Flash learning contents created by our school. After 2020, do we have to convert all of them to other languages like HTML5? And do you know exactly when the service is finished?

This is the official Adobe announcement.  It links to related announcements by each of the major US browser vendors.  I would strongly recommend reading all of them in order to understand any potential impact to your customers or products. Flash & The Future of Interactive Content | Adobe Blog

Gaming companies have also had years to convert, and unlike teachers have no excuse that they aren't technicians. Many, many games will die and with them the companies that reply on them. It's sad that people have adopted the "ostrich" approach to solving this problem.

Do you know how much money and human resources it needs to rewrite a game or application for a company?

I guess not, unfortunately this situation is not a game. it's more serious or it's a very bad game.

Q: I’ve got a website that needs Flash Player, how can I continue with this beyond 2020?

There are a few options for Flash-based web applications, particularly when using Flex. HARMAN provides software services to support migration of content away from Flash/Flex using a variety of tools and technologies, including Haxe, Apache Royale, Angular, OpenUI5, and many other JavaScript frameworks. If the application can be deployed outside of the browser, then it is often simpler to reuse the Flash-based technologies: either migrating the app to use AIR, or if it’s a website that uses a lot of HTML/JS code, then HARMAN have the option to provide a “packaged browser” solution where we wrap up a browser engine (such as Chromium) along with a customised version of the Flash Player, such that the package is a separate installable app that is purely intended to load and run the web application. For any more information about these options, please contact us at adobe.support@harman.com

But i'm really sad that its  going away. Goodbye Flash player.
