Howdy y’all! We’re coming in on the home stretch. This is the fourth and almost final update post, so comment below with your progress, challenges, and next steps. See you all in a few days for the time call. Then we’ll have a week for finishing touches and documenting out projects before the showcase.

    Unfortunately I haven’t been able to make any more caramel, and based on what’s going on life wise I’m not going to have a chance to before the end of the month. I’m still happy that I was able to make a few attempts and make some progress though!

    The courses I have been working on are coming together okay. I wasn’t able to get interactive HTML5 working, but I made some nicely and consistently styled templates to keep the formatting consistent and looking attractive. Not just raw HTML, which is effectively the default with the WYSIWYG editor.

    I did investigate some options for getting embedded HTML5, which I want to look into in the medium term; it requires setting up a server to run open-source software. We have the hardware to run it, but idk if IT will let me.

    The alternative is to figure out a scalable way to add HTML5 repositories to the learning management system. That might actually be better, but I’m nervous about breaking things on prod. (Or, I suppose, we could pay for a prohibitively expensive subscription service that will manage it all for us, lol. Like there’s money in public-sector education for that…)

    Overall, it was a middling success.
