Question Please help - Flash/Shockwave

I am an online school teacher and the student I am working with uses a Linux OS. I am sending him the following link to complete some keyboarding lessons:

But the student says without Flash or Shockwave, he cannot do these lessons.

I see on the Adobe site a link for Flash... but the student says he still cannot get the keyboarding lessons to open.

How can I help this student get to this link?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Hi, welcome to LQ!

The problem is that it's not flash or shockwave, but director (according to the page source, anyway).
