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!

iOS and Flash are Shaking Hands

Today, I finally had the chance to program some worthy Apple App tests with Flash CS5, and I’m pretty pleased with the results. This is great news. With Apple allowing the Flash authoring platform to create their Apps, it’s quickly opened up the doors for DDA to deliver projects created in Flash on iOS devices. We have a couple virtual learning environments, virtual medical simulations and elearning projects lined up to be available on the App store. It’s really a win-win situation where the same programming can be used to deliver rich Internet experiences on multiple platforms with minimal recoding.

Busy with Custom Applications, Videos and Medical Simulations

Well, it has been a few weeks since my last blog, I’ll admit it. But you know what that means, I’ve been fairly busy and distracted by all the projects we have here at DDA! In the video and animation department alone, we have a number of projects being completed, finessed and started.

I’ve also been on a couple shoots since my last blog. One to document the use of a particular medical product during an open-heart, aortic valve replacement surgery. Another was to interview the staff at an addiction rehabilitation facility located in a historical and beautiful building.

A couple of the project we are finishing include custom-made software to navigate a library of images and save them to your computer for use in other applications, as well as a complex medical eLearning tool, complete with almost 100 custom medical 3D simulation animations, made by DDA of course, to globally standardize the grading of various swallowing anatomical features and anomalies. We’re also getting close to launching our universal portfolio, which will allow users on mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads to browse our large and ever-growing portfolio. This is truly an exciting time for us to deliver our services on mobile platforms with them finally able to support the kind of advanced and technological work we do here at DDA.

Stay tuned for updates. I’ll try not to leave it so long next time!
