Submission Ask Slashdot: What should I study to make educational games for the web? 2

Modern Primate writes: I want to make educational games for the web of approximately the quality of many of the Flash games I've seen. I've tinkered a bit with Flash and Actionscript before, but I'm told Flash is on its way out (and isn't supported on the iPad/iPhone anyway). HTML5 isn't universally supported yet, either. What should I study to be able to make web games that are compatible with multiple formats? I have some very basic coding skills from writing macros in Visual Basic for Excel, but not much more than that. I want to learn something that can get me started until I can afford to pay someone to code for me. What does Slashdot suggest?
