Learning Upgrade Will Transition From Adobe Flash to HTML5 Before January 2021

Learning Upgrade is transitioning our student web app to an HTML5 version that does not require the Adobe Flash player.  This new version will go live in December 2020 before the scheduled end of Flash player support on December 31,  2020. 

The HTML5 version is for non-mobile platforms: Chromebook, Windows, Mac.  Mobile platforms such as iPAD and smartphones use our mobile app which does not require Adobe Flash.

We have designed the HTML5 version to have the same functionality as the Flash version, including the song videos and interactive games that our students and educators know and love.  Note that the HTML5 version will require a recent up-to-date version of web browsers that supports WebGL.

We anticipate that a beta test version of the HTML5 app will be available in early December 2020 for testing purposes.

Thank you for your patience through this transition.  Our goal is to make the process as smooth as possible for teachers and students.


Learning Upgrade Technical Requirements

Teachers and students access the Learning Upgrade courses through a web browser on a computer or an app on a tablet or phone. There is no software to install. Teachers create a username and password to log into the web site, and then provide access to each enrolled student with a username and password. Students can then sign in to complete lessons using a web browser on a computer or an app on a tablet or phone.

The requirements for each platform are shown below. All platforms require a bandwidth of about 80kbs per connected student. The best way to test compatibility is to play our DEMO on the device.
