TravelMuse Yaycations Calculator
Tools: Adobe Flash, ActionScript CS3, XML, MP3
TravelMuse's Yaycations Calculator is a multi-media tool designed to engage users in learning how to save money for vacations. The calculator is a Flash/ActionScript module that collects data from the user and then passes the data back to the page for subsequent processing. Throughout the process, a series of calculations continually update the user's savings and potential travel budget.
The module was built with flexibility in mind. All data is read from an XML file so that TravelMuse managers can change various parts of the content at any time. ViewPoint Geography designed a set of subtle sounds to enliven the process.
