Below is a link to an interactive web application built with Saola. It’s a maths resource to help primary school (4-11 in UK) teachers teaching number concepts.
Called Plethos, it was originally built as a Windows executable application over ten years ago using a now defunct multimedia application. For a long time now, it’s something that I wanted to redevelop as a HTML5 project for use on modern technology including interactive whiteboards and tablets.
I played around with the outline when I first brought Saola Animate but decided a couple of weeks ago to really see what I could achieve and have managed to implement all the core functionality of the original product with out too much difficultly.
As I doubt many people outside of the classroom have ever used a hundred square - I have created a simple video that shows the functionality in action.
The application is built from scratch including a drag and drop library I created to work specially for my Saola projects. However, the library uses pointer events rather than the older mouse events and may not work on some browsers.
I’m aware of a glitch with IE11 and that there is no support for Safari. However, my understanding is that Apple has started to add support as part of experiential features in the technology preview version.
Hopefully this version will prove as useful as the original but also highlight some of the capabilities of Saola Animate.
