Hina (2010) animated Flash interactive

Hina is a multi-media collection of resources comprising six books for students, posters, an online resource (get into the really cool animated story via "ngā kōrero" button, then there's a choice of 3 stories. "Whakaterea" will bring up the navigation).  I produced all the animated Flash interactives and interface utilising the beautiful illustration work of Ellie May Logan.

I produced all Tērā Ia Ngā Tai’s online interactive components comprising talking books with rollover glossaries.

I designed and built Kā Puna Karikari a Rākaihautū’s online talking books, rollover glossaries and comprehension quizzes.

He Puia, he Iwi (2004)

Published in three languages (Māori, Hawai’ian and English), both in print and online. I designed and built the interface and Flash application. He Puia, he Iwi was nominated, in the category of e-learning, to represent New Zealand at the World Summit Awards in Tunisia, November 2005 (UN Awards for excellence in digital content).

Ahurea ki Tua (2003)

Ahurea ki Tua is an adaptation of a mainstream school resource that was originally produced by UNESCO and the NZ Futures Trust. It was published as a print resource for teachers and students. I built the online component.

Te Ao Hurihuri (2001)

Te Ao Hurihuri is a multi-media collection of resources based on a lyrical recount of Māori cosmology. I designed and produced the web based resource and CD-Rom while senior designer at Veda. Te Ao Hurihuri was entered into the TUANZ Awards for Innovation in Education in 2001, and was selected as a finalist. The interactive component comprises a talking book, winter and summer night sky charts, a lunar planting and fishing guide, song lyrics, and a music mixer.

I learnt how to code website interfaces in the late 1990s. All have been upgraded since then so here's some screenshots from the archives...
