What once seemed like the beginning is now coming to an end. When we were assigned to create a prototype on anything we would like, our main focus was Bioethics. Since Zabdi, Carina and I were interested in Law and we wanted to do something with our pathway too. At first when we were choosing the way we wanted our Bioethics topic to be presented, we decided it would be a good idea to include computer science into the project. Therefore, we wanted to create a game in which people would learn the basics of Biomedical, but they would also have fun. At the beginning we started researching different types of coding for the computer, but then when we went back and reflected as a group, we realized that we would not have enough time to create the game. This led to us deciding to build an Ebook.
Currently, our team is working on putting the Ebook together, after all the research that we accumulated about Bioethics. Although, the app we will be using for Bioethics is IAuthor. Through our process of looking to see which Ebook we should use, a lot of research went into making sure that the Ebook we chose was going to be the right Ebook. We researched HTML5 Digital, Creating Ebooks, IBooks Author, Publish Paper, and Mobi Pocket Creator 4.2. We researched how much flexibility we were able to have within the app, as well as the quantity of things we could do within the app. Ultimately, we decided between two main apps, which can be seen in the table below.
Finalized Types of Ebooks:
At the end we concluded that IAuthor would be the app that we would use because it is more flexible, and it makes it so that a variety of people are able to read it. Through this app, any kind of book is created and the book comes more to life.

As a team we are finishing the book and waiting for the big day in which Make O-Rama will be taking place. Cannot wait for all of you to see our final project, thank you so much for being part of our journey. The end is near!
