I was thinking of something to do to help, during the self-isolation, so I started on a mobile app to help those who are finding themselves confined to their homes during this pandemic. This app could be the first of a series dealing with mental health topics. I am imagining them as all working around this “7 Days” concept, with different topics.
I am working as quickly as possible, but it takes time to create these from scratch!
App Development for Meditation
This is only one screen of many that I have created the last days during self-isolation here in Aotearoa. Yes, I am still working on a mobile app for learning Te Reo Māori, but that will be on hold a few weeks. Back to this mobile app development for those wanting to learn meditation during this self-isolation!
Not so long ago, you would have to develop at least three separate code projects – one for iOS (Apple mobile), one for Android (Google mobile) and one for the web (or desktop applications). This generally meant three different programmers (at least) on three different projects. Delivery of the three projects was rarely simultaneous and maintenance and updates for all three code bases and projects was equally problematic.
Apps for Mobile and the Web (Desktop)
With Flutter, you develop in one environment (the Flutter SDK) and then export to all three environments – iOS, Android and the web. The image following is a screenshot of a Te Reo Māori language learning app that is in current development at Narratives Aotearoa. The app is being emulated (the laptop is mimicking what the app will look like on mobile – in this case an Android device) and behind that you can see the same app being shown for the web in a browser.

What does all of this mean for your business? Apps can be developed quicker and released to all of your customers (mobile and web) at the same time. Updates are easier and costs are lower (one programming language and one project, rather than multiple projects).

A lot is happening in e-learning globally, as schools, universities and other organisations try to quickly shift from on-site training to online education in response to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. This shift is also being seen in Aotearoa New Zealand, as the Ministry of Education communicates to schools regarding plans and testing of online classes for students
Online Learning Resources
Materials and training need to be available as soon as possible, including video resources, PDF and online reading materials, online quizzes and exams and teacher and tutor support services for students. A process of e-learning that has been slowing moving is now moving at a rapid pace.
Online Learning Skills and Experience
Skills in demand over the coming months will be those related to online content creation, video production skills, online assessment creation and review, the training of organisations in using e-learning technologies and the use of project management principles and practices to quickly and professionally embed new learning into the “business as usual” (BAU) of many schools, universities and other organisations.
