Web development

Although taking considerable time, web development can seem 'invisible'!

In fact much occurs behind the scenes, preparing material for editors to be able to manage their sites autonomously. The purpose therefore of this section is a quick indication of the three main options, including one which delivers websites for locations without internet connection...


the teaching modules

shown here is material from DevelopingPhysio's 'teaching modules'. Provided by qualified physios training selected students in remote communities, the modules follow a pattern of familiarising the student with reference material (in purple), though assessment process (blue) that leads in turn to the treatment procedures (green). Because interactive choices are required during the assessments stages, the entire project is designed as an app (once trials are complete) allowing both online and offline use as well as printable wherever required.

Information (static) sites

Such lack of autonomy for the site owner is becoming increasingly outmoded, especially with social media facilities. If for nothing else therefore, perhaps these few examples indicate an 'older way' of site management!
