    The Ambition

    As part of their link ups with the BBC TV series, The Open University wanted to create rich, interactive digital content with soft eLearning outcomes. They teamed up with us and haven’t looked back since.

    What we did

    We have been one of the Open Universities go to digital agencies since 2005, since then we’ve created games, and interactives for a variety of purposes including link ups with BBC TV series and projects to help them market their courses to wider audiences.

    The most recent work we’ve done for the OU was an HTML5 game to promote their computing courses. Based around an introduction to algorithms and the use of heuristics, the game introduces novice coders to the traveling salesmen problem.



    Museum of the Dead

    As part of their link up with the BBC the Open University asked us to develop an engaging interactive as a companion to the Saving Species TV series. The result was the museum of the dead, a beautifully illustrated museum set in the future that presided over animals from the present which have become extinct.
