[Etoys] EToys as textbook/exercise replacement ?

I've downloaded the image of EToys and I'm playing around in my
Windows PC, it works quite well.

I want to create EToys projects that will replace the normal exercise
texbook. Most of the exercises just need to display the question,
provide a space for writing down, and a space for giving the final
answer. A few (like geometry) would need tools like a compass and
ruler, plus giving names to parts (like naming an edge of a triangle)
and so on. Maybe some animation will be used, but no scripting, and
there is no concept of grading in an automated sense.

Now, for something like this, I'd use Flash in a web browser, but I've
been dictated to use the EToys platform. Is this the correct platform
? Should I develop on EToys or should I drop in squeak ? I'd prefer
python to do this, as I'm much more versed in python than smalltalk...
