    Please can Canvas remove the need for Flash across its Web platform as part of core functionality and replace it with HTML 5?

    Recorded media content within the Canvas Rich Content Editor currently still relies on Flash and is being addressed by Canvas engineers. Any recorded content can still be accessed by manually allowing permission for flash content in the browser.
