ArcGIS Explorer Desktop and future Esri support...

I have been told by an employee at Esri that the ArcGIS Explorer Desktop product will no longer be supported in the future, and that it will only exist as an online viewer.  I assume this would be http://www.arcgis.com/explorer/.  Can someone from Esri on this forum confirm that the Desktop Explorer is being officially discontinued, and if so, when that will happen?

The main reason I am asking this is because I use Explorer Desktop in some of my college teaching.  I would like to know if it's going away (and when) before I spend the time updating GIS exercises for my students.
