Flash Discontinued, Brightspace Audio Files Impacted

Flash has discontinued their support of Adobe Flash. Many students have not been able to listen to audio files uploaded onto Brightspace. There are few ways to address this issue:

  1. Tell students to use the Chrome Browser and enable flash. Here is a link that will assist: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en
  2. Upload the audio files to Microsoft Streams or OneDrive and share those links on Brightspace (ensure on OneDrive, you make the file “View Only” and set an expiry on the link). Here is a link that will assist: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/solutions/best-practices-anonymous-sharing?view=o365-worldwide

This is a temporary solution, please consult back on the Tech Fellows Portal for future posts on creating audio content.
