However, there are a few modules that we will not be updating to HTML5. If you are using these modules in your course, you will still need to have Flash enabled in your browser.
Here are the modules that will not be updated:
- Microsoft Office 2013 Modules
- Microsoft Office 2010 Modules
- Any Unsupported Modules
