Flashcards Example

Until recently Athabasca University used Wimba Create to produce interactive learning objects - Flashcards in this case. When the university let its Wimba licence lapse we decided to build a Flashcard app that used the same data format as Wimba used. The AU Flashcard app was built in Adobe Flash and used the Adobe Flash Player browser plug-in. Since the original version, we've re-built the Flashcard app in HTML5 using the canvas object. The version you see here is the HTML5 version.

The example shown below is pulled from PSYC 426. Over the next few pages we'll show how to embed the Flashcard app and how to format the flashcard data in the XML file loaded with the Flashcard app.
