With funds provided by the University of Oregon, we are currently converting our modules to HTML5. That process should be completed sometime in spring 2018. Modules in the new format will display on iPads, mobile phones, and desktop computers using modern web browsers; unconverted maps will only work on desktop computers and require a browser with Adobe Flash installed.
