Flash eLearning Tool Conversion to iPad App

The past couple weeks I have been concentrating on the conversion of one of our virtual learning environment tools to an iPad App. The tool is built using Flash and the idea of converting it to an App came in the concluding stages of the tool development. Luckily, Apple recently granted permission for Adobe’s Flash platform to convert to iOS App. But unfortunately, there are a number of limitations concerning the capabilities of a Flash generated App. Embedded video performance isn’t great, animations need to be fairly simple and a number of the iOS APIs are not accessible. However, I am pretty pleased with the conversion so far and hope that our client and Apple will agree. We have a couple more eLearning and medical simulation tools lined up for App conversion and deployment and I have a feeling I’ll be getting pretty acquainted with Apple’s Online iOS Dev Center, and that’s a good thing!

Virtual Learning Environment - A new way to learn.

Sometimes virtual can mean unreal. In the context of a learning experience, virtual should mean more real and true-to-life than other learning experiences.

What could be less real than a text based description of a medical procedure or an industrial process? What could be less engaging than a classroom instructional session? What could be less memorable than line drawing illustrations and captioned still images.

Performing a medical procedure in a virtual OR, simulating a cardiac point tagging procedure in a virtual ep lab or performing an aortic valve replacement on a virtual heart, can be an adrenalin producing, heart pumping, virtual experience like nothing else, short of the real thing.

Perhaps the definition of  virtual as being something unreal is less accurate than defining virtual as actually being closer to reality.

The way to Train: Web-based Learning Platforms

New technology is forever shaping the landscape in which we live.  Regardless of place, time,  and regardless of location, people can connect to businesses,  networks, and each other through forms of digital communication that are forcing organizations of all kinds to reevaluate how they reach their staff and audience. Take for instance training. Web-based eLearning has taken paper-based and face-to-face training into the virtual realm. Organizations no longer have to arrange costly training sessions to bring associates from various locations together. Now, through one web-based platform, associates can connect, engage, and perform a number of training tasks from the convenience of a home or office setting. From virtual medical device simulations to courseware and testing, a robust Learning Management System (LMS) can exponentially increase an organization’s training capabilities and resources. DDA Corp and DDA Medical, a full-service eLearning developer and provider, is just the company to help your business realize a better way.

  • Virtual Learning Environments (VLE):  Don’t show, don’t tell, but engage. With virtual learning environments, put the user in control. Our extreme capabilities in animation, programming, and interactive technologies enable us to build life-like simulation environments that give trainees the valuable hands-on experience that is key to material proficiency.
  • Testing and Accreditation: Know with certainty that your staff has grasped important training concepts with testing to confirm comprehension. With robust back-end reporting and administrative capabilities, reviewing the performance of an individual or department can be achieved with ease.
