Scenario Creation

  • Last Revised : August 16th, 2021

Consent Form

If uploading real patient information (X-Rays, Ultrasounds, etc.) it is a good idea to have them fill out a consent form, so that they are aware of how their data/medical information is being used and that they are able to provide informed consent to the process. If materials are completely anonymized and all identifiable information is removed, it is not necessary, although it is good practice to do so if possible.

Templates and Guides:

Inputting a scenario can be tricky, so to help with formatting and keeping a consistent style, we've created a series of templates that you can copy/paste into the scenario and scenario stage input boxes. Below the templates, you'll find a series of guides that walk you through things like inserting images, links, and formatting buttons.


  1. 1. Save the image to your computer
  2. 2. Click the image button in the editor
  3. 3. Go to the upload tab, select the image you want to upload, and click send it to the server
  4. 4. Set the dimensions of the image (Width must be 800px or less)
  5. 5. Click 'OK'
  6. 6. If the image was already uploaded to the server, select the 'Browse Server' option in the image popup to find your image

  1. 1. Highlight what you want to add a link to and click the link button. This could be a piece of text, an image, or any other part of your scenario stage.
  2. 2. To link a webpage, simply paste the website URL in the URL text box
  3. 3. To link to an image or other file, upload the file to the server on the upload tab. If the file is already uploaded, use the browse server button to find the file
  4. 4. Once your link/file has been selected, go to the target tab and select the "New Window" option in the "Target" dropdown menu.
  5. 5. Click 'OK'

  1. 1. Click where you want to place your box, then click on the 'Spoiler' icon
  2. 2. Click the '+' icon on the spoiler box to edit the body of the text that will appear in the dropdown

  1. 1. Right click on the stage you want to direct to, and select "Inspect Element".
  2. 2. In the “Inspect” window that will appear on the side of your browser, look for which “cnode” that stage is identified as. The info for that stage will be automatically highlighted in the “Inspect” window.
  3. 3. Back in the stage editor for the trigger button you want to modify, click on “Source" in the upper left, and navigate to the code for that button

    a. Find the “href=” part of the code, and change it to equal the cnode that you need
  4. 4. Test it out!


To use the templates, just highlight and copy them from their text boxes on this page. Then, click on the "Source" button on the upper left corner of the input box on the scenario input stage you want to edit. Once you're in the "Source" view, paste the template code and return to the old view to edit!
