The Ecole des Formations Maritimes (School of Maritime Trainings) is a school supervised by the French Ministry of the Sea. the Yeu Island and in the Sables d'Olonne, students are trained to become professionals sailors, from the seaman to the captain. During their training, the students have to practice the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) using aggregated simulators. However, there are not enough simulators according to the class size, and that's why teachers organize training sessions using an interactive DVD: so the students can listen to the sentences both in French and in English before using the actual simulator. This solution has two major downsides :
- The DVD is based on outdated technology (Flash), which is not compatible with web browsers since January 2021
- Audio records are engraved into the DVD so teachers can't change them on every GMDSS update
About the UI design, it was important to create something more modern than what the DVD offered, but it was also important to keep it very simple and usable for people that are not used to handle web tools.
