Got Flash on Your Mind?
If you’ve been a long-time user of WebAssign, you’ve likely encountered Adobe Flash when working within the platform. If you are a new user, chances are you may never have seen it! Here’s why….
Originally, Adobe Flash was the technology of choice to power our ebook reading experience (known as youBooks), our WebAssign graphing tool, and multimedia assets such as Watch Its. However, as all things technology tend to do, new technology comes along to continue to improve the user experience through ease of use and functionality.
Now: Converting Away from Flash
Over the past couple of years, the WebAssign team has been slowly but surely converting content that is reliant upon Adobe Flash, with the goal to eliminate Adobe Flash in all the current Cengage WebAssign courses to be realized in 2020.
Still have Flash in your course?
In the meantime, we encourage you to let your students know if they ever encounter Flash, to continue to download it. If they get this message - Flash Content Not Shown – they can visit the Student Online Help link to check to see if they have Flash and enable it if so, plus get directions to download if needed.
If you have specific questions regarding your Cengage WebAssign course, please reach out to your Learning Consultant for specifics.
