AN EXPLANATION ABOUT WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY INTERACTIVE

The interactive experience enhances and supports learning. Interactive experiences are based on a way students think, learn and understand.

A simple tap or click can turn the learning experience into a journey of discovery. Using research and theory-based design, we use technology and multi-media as a tool in learning. It’s easy for a student or adult to interact with the stories. They click on a vocabulary word and a definition appears. They click on the image of a camera and a photograph appears. 

Text, images, video, music and simple animation are all possible in interactive design.
