Are your referring to the home page

It actually doesnıt require the flash plug in. It only seems to be required
once you click on the ³Play Flash² button.

(I had just reinstalled  IE this morning and had lost all my plugins, so I
tried to see how far I could get before I needed the plug in.)

And there are ALT tags to choose the ³Skip Flash² button.

However, IMHO, the ALT tags arenıt descriptive enough. A better alternative
would be something like ³Go to Course using Flash², and ³Go to Course
without Flash².
