Please Note: Flash will no longer be supported by any web browsers at the end of 2020. Because of this, some browsers have disabled Flash by default. You'll need to manually enable Flash to properly view courses that utilize Flash technology.

Running Flash on Mobile Devices
Please Note - In general, Flash is not supported on mobile devices. However, there are third-party solutions that might help you run Flash on your mobile device. Tortal Support does not guarantee these solutions will be successful in all instances.
1. Prerequisites - You’ll need a phone or tablet running Android 2.2 (Froyo) to 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Check Settings > About phone / About tablet to see what you’re running. If you’re on Jelly Bean, check that you have a stock browser installed besides Google Chrome, as Chrome for Android doesn’t support Flash. Check your app drawer for “Browser” or “Internet.”
2. First, you’ll need to tell your device it’s OK to install apps from sources other than Google Play. You’ll need to check the box marked “Unknown sources.” On Android 2.2, 2.3 or 3.x, this is found under Settings > Applications. On Android 4.x, you’ll find it under Settings > Security.
3. On your phone or tablet, download the Flash for Android application downloader. (It'll then download the file directly from Adobe.)
4. Once that’s done, pull down the notification area and tap on the file to install it. Tap “Install” on the next screen to confirm.
5. When Flash is installed, head into your phone’s stock browser (again, Google Chrome won’t support your newly-installed Flash apk).
6. On Android 3.0 or later, go to Menu (three dots next to the address bar on some phones) > Settings > Advanced > Enable plug-ins. To enable Flash content all the time, select “Always on,” or to enable it selectively on each page, choose “On demand.” Or on Android 2.2 or 2.3, go to Menu > Settings (sometimes Menu > More > Settings), where you’ll find the “Enable plug-ins” option.
You should now be ready to go. Check this link on your phone to confirm that Flash is up and running.
If you need to access an Adobe Flash site on your iPhone or iPad, you have several third-party options. Browsers such as the Puffin Web Browser comes with out-of-box support for Adobe Flash. Other browsers like Photon also offer this feature, but we recommend Puffin because it’s highly rated and free.
Technically, rather than running Flash on your iPad or iPhone, Puffin runs websites that use Flash on a remote server and streams you the video. From your end, you appear to be using a Flash-based website as normal. But all the heavy lifting happens remotely.
To get started, open the App Store, search for “Puffin Web Browser,” and tap on the “Get” button to download the free browser.
