Guide for Movie 1. It demonstrates:
  • that when we first arrive, Spock had been the last (i.e. most recent) patient found and displayed are his age of 74y5m and his allergy kein allergien bekannt which means "no allergy". For now, ignore the question mark in "Capt? Spock"
  • that at bottom, the current tab can be seen to be Handbuch which means Notes. It simply is a snapshot of some wiki pages.
  • within the search box, the availability of a "tooltip" which can be invoked merely by hovering
  • a search for Kirk. A single click behind the name (!) highlights the name completely so you can start typing without deleting the content of the box (saves keystrokes). A single click inside the name places the cursor at the specified position in the string so you can edit the name and search again. Note that on completion of the search, the Allergy info refreshes, and in fact so does Age but it is inapparent because the actors were born only 4 days apart!
  • a change of tabs to Velaufsnotizen which means Progress Notes
  • entry via keyboard of a SOAP note, including jumping between rows as might occur in a real encounter where during the exam the patient may provide additional history
  • a misbehaviour present in wxWindows 2.6 (absent in 2.4) in which the input areas shrink as text is entered
  • support within the text for symbolic characters e.g. 37 "degrees"
  • the user's choice to delay assignment (input) of an Episode name until the end of the visit, mirroring typical practice for one may not know until completion of the visit what the episode should be called.
  • saving of the item, which on account of being an "open" episode, appears in the left hand panel with "(Episode)" appended. The item above is shown with Grunderkrankung appended, denoting it as a significant health issue.

Creating Screencasts for GNUmed

There are several ways to create screencasts. The following method is helpful to those who wish to create screencast for a Linux environment. The following software will be needed to make this happen.

To begin, you will have to set your particular Linux Distribution to accept remote connection. In Ubuntu you can do this by clicking System | Preferences | Remote Desktop. When the dialog displays I allow other users to view and control my desktop and under security for the sake of the capture I uncheck the confirmation and require password. Finally, you will need to know the IP address of your Linux machine. You can do this by typing the command ifconfig in a terminal. Once this is done you can start capturing from your Windows XP machine.

To set up your XP machine, download and install the above software.
  • Start the VNC viewer software and enter the IP address of your Linux machine in the dialog.
  • Start Cam Studio and from the toolbar click Region | Region to allow you to set the recording region of your desktop.
  • Click the record button (red circle), move your pointer to the top left of the window you want to capture and click and hold your mouse button and drag to the lower right corner of the area you want to capture. Once you let go of the mouse button, Cam Studio will start capturing the window you selected.

At this point you would do whatever it is you are wanting to show to your users in the VNC window and your XP machine will capture this as an AVI file. When you are done click the stop button (blue square). Cam Studio will ask you for a name and place to save your video. You could share this video with other users, but it will have no sound. To make the video better you will want to add sound to it. There are a couple of ways to do this, you could load your video in Windows Movie maker and record your voice and merge it into on file, or you can use something like Audacity to record your voice as you create the video and then use Movie Maker or another video editing software to merge them together.

More information about screen casting can be found on You Tube and doing a search on screen casting.
