Adobe has announced the End of Life of its Flash Player solution. Below is the extract from its notification on this topic.

As previously announced in July 2017, Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player after December 31, 2020 (“EOL Date”). (…) Adobe will be removing Flash Player download pages from its site and Flash-based content will be blocked from running in Adobe Flash Player after the EOL Date. (…) Adobe always recommends using the latest, supported, and up-to-date software. Customers should not use Flash Player after the EOL Date since it will not be supported by Adobe.” (https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html)

What does this mean for you as a CAE LearningSpace user?

1. If you are a CAE LearningSpace Enterprise, Essentials, or Experience user:

Good news! As all three platforms are plug-in free, none of the functionalities of your system rely on Adobe Flash Player. They are all based on the latest HTML5 technology, Hence, you can continue to enjoy high-quality simulation management with your CAE LearningSpace system.

Limitations due to change: none

(info) Recommended action: As communicated earlier, kindly ensure all your users are accessing your CAE LearningSpace solution on a Google Chrome browser, which is best suited for HTML5 applications.

For all other CAE LearningSpace users, the End of Life of the Adobe Flash Player can affect three functionalities, depending on the version of CAE LearningSpace you are using:

  • Video viewing
  • Intercom functionality
  • Simulator Waveform display

2. You are a CAE LearningSpace Intuity user:

Your Video and Intercom functions are HTML5-based, and not Flash dependent. Hence, these functionalities are not affected by the change.

However, the Waveform functionality is not HTML5-based and is hence affected by the End of Life of the Adobe Flash Player.

(warning) Limitations due to change: Your users will be able to access the system using the Google Chrome browser, which is best suited for an HTML5 application. Video functions and Intercom will work as normal, but users  will not be able to see waveforms (ie. your Patient Simulator-related events will have limited functionalities)

(tick) If you are currently under an active Support and Maintenance contract: You are eligible for a free upgrade to our plug-in free and robust CAE LearningSpace Enterprise platform. 

(info) If you are not under an active Support and Maintenance contract: We have some options to upgrade to our CAE LearningSpace Enterprise platform. Please reach out to our CAE LearningSpace Support Team or your CAE Representative to discuss your options for the upgrade.

3. You are a Replay user:

Your Video functions are HTML5-based, and not Flash dependent. Hence, these functionalities not affected by the change.

However, the Waveform functionality is not HTML5-based and is hence affected by the  End of Life of the Adobe Flash Player.

(warning) Limitations due to change: Your users will be able to access the system using the Google Chrome browser, which is best suited for an HTML5 application. Video functions will work as normal, but users will not be able to see waveforms (ie. your Patient Simulator-related events will have limited functionalities)

(info) Recommended solution to have all functions available: As CAE LearningSpace Replay users, you have some options to upgrade to our plug-in free and robust CAE LearningSpace Experience platform. Please reach out to our CAE LearningSpace Support Team or your CAE Representative to discuss your options for the upgrade.

4. You are a user of a CAE LearningSpace system that is older than 2016 and has not been updated since:

Your system does not have HTML5-based Video, Waveform, or Intercom functionalities.

(warning) Limitations due to change: Your users will be able to access the system if they use Internet Explorer 11 and SPlayer, but the Waveform and Intercom functionalities will not be available.

(info) Recommended solution to have all functions available: Please reach out to our CAE LearningSpace Support Team or your CAE Representative to schedule an update to CAE LearningSpace Enterprise.
