Hi, I need to create an educational piece of software to teach medical students effective team communication skills.
I am thinking of either branched video app or branched animation. Animation would be better in terms of maintenance - no need to find actors if something needs to be re-done.
Since I have not found yet an easy to use animation package that does not require a subscription, I am leaning toward a branched video approach.
I plan to have a video player in the window and when the video stops playing, the users will have options similar to this list:
- administer medication
- order labs
- order ECG
- order imaging studies
- request consultation
- repeat vital signs
- keep observing the patient
- review patient’s history
- ask the patient how he/she is doing
- ask a nurse for an update
- wash my hands
- put on mask
- check IV line
- call for security
- review the post-op wound
- call for help
One answer from the list will be the best choice, two or three will be correct but not the best, for the rest choices there will be a standard answer “No, I would not do that at this time!”
All the answers will be provided in a form of a short video clip.
The main question that I have is that if I should create a desktop application or a web application.
With my previously created web apps, I’ve struggled a lot when about 70 students use a web application at the same time.
We had a long discussion about XOJO web apps on this forum about six months ago, and I believe the consensus was that XOJO in its current form is not ready for developing web apps that are going to be used by a large number of people at the same time.
Does this statement remains to be true?
Should I create a desktop app for this project?
Developing will be done on a Mac, and the apps will be compiled for Mac and for PC. The most recent XOJO version will be used.
Any advise is highly appreciated.
