TV anchorman and television documentary host (Investigative Reports, American Justice, and Cold Case Files) wanted to take the content of his PBS show “The New Explorers” and turn it into content for elementary and high school classrooms. A monumental undertaking, to be sure. No Ink was hired as the lead creative and interactive team for the four pilot programs to be delivered on CD-ROM to schools throughout the Chicagoland area.
Working within a larger team of education professionals, video producers, and project team managers at Chicago post-production company Post Effects, I spent the better part of three months designing, programming, developing, and testing the CD-ROMs. Shown here are screen captures of one of the courses: Killer Virus.
The CDs also contained teacher guides and manuals, PowerPoint shows, Microsoft Office documents, PDF files, and video files — all of which were used as part of the coursework, and all of which were seamlessly integrated into the Director program files that made up the interactive portion of the CD-ROMs.
