This change has been prompted by all modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari etc) making the decision to discontinue the support of Flash. Flash underpins the current modules found in the Quizzes & Activities tab.
We’ll be moving all of our existing Quizzes & Activities into a Legacy Quizzes & Activities tab in the Titles section of anatomy.tv where you will be able to access these modules as normal up until the browsers no longer support Flash. This move is intended to partition away modules that will cease to work due to the incoming changes with the way browsers handle Flash.
Although the Quizzes & Activities can be accessed until the end of December 2020, we’ll be launching a improved replacement quiz very soon that is not underpinned by Flash. It is intended to replace all our regional Flash-based quizzes and the Functional Anatomy quiz module. It will be available in a new Quizzing tab in the Titles section of anatomy.tv so it is right at the forefront of your anatomy.tv experience.
