Indeed, if someone else made them (sorry, I wrongly read your message as saying you had made them), then THEY had 3 years to solve this, and it is those people you might talk to. Conceivably, they did it and didn't tell you.

There is no replacement. Your interactives will stop working. Whoever made them has had 3 years notice to make new ones that don't need Flash Player, they have left it very late. You will probably need different lesson plans.

As a teacher, that is very upsetting that all of the assignments I have
developed off of these interactives are now going to be useless. I am going
to have to start from scratch on so many topics because you are choosing to
not use flash player. There is not enough time in the day to do that. You
have made my life much much harder on top of all the stress I have from
trying to figure things out electronically due to COVID.

You have had 3 years to do this work.

Thank you for replying. I was never informed of the change, however I am not the one who made the interactives because I don't know how. Unfortunately, I also don't have the time to try to create my own and I haven't been able to find any other interactives that cover the content (at least not as well). Thanks.

In general, beware of building lessons on tech solutions; things change rapidly and you can expect pretty much everything to fail sooner rather than later. Keep on top of what is expected to go away.
