Nobody has stated that it can't be done. But experience shows the
opposite correlation (and I have worked in many edu projects using
Flash myself, some huge such as TLF's SOCCI).

Maybe it's a cultural problem (ie: people who get excited with Flash
things singing and dancing tend to build shiny stuff rather than deep
rich stuff with "no ceiling").

Please change our opinion -- build something outstanding for learning
with low barriers of entry and no ceiling :-)
