ESET QR Code Mobile Scavenger Hunt

Red Door utilized the emerging mobile technology of QR (Quick Response) codes to hide clues leading participants down a path of unique ESET experiences. For those without smartphones capable of reading the QR codes, Red Door created an SMS version of the hunt, where clues were unlocked by texting specific keywords to a shortcode.

At the end of the hunt, contestants received a boxed version of ESET's award winning software, and entered to win a Sony VAIO laptop by texting their email address to a shortcode.

The results were awesome! Over 120 people completed the hunt, and at the first clue (the ESET photo booth) a line formed at the start of the hunt that lasted for hours. The scavenger hunt engaged passers by and made them think about the ESET brand.

Plinky

Plinky | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

Writing is one of the key literacy learning skills.


For many learners it can also be one of the most challenging.


The way learning Providers teach 'writing' has alot to do with their learners attitude; if they can find engaging and collaborative ways to teach writing then, their learners writing performance will be enhanced.


One strategy is to use technology.


For learners, generating ideas is often the most difficult phase of their writing process.


This is where Plinky can help.


Every day Plinky provides a new prompt (like a question, or a challenge), and everyone gets a chance to answer.


Users can...
- add photos, maps, playlists and more.
- easily share their Plinky answers on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Tumblr, and most major blogging services.

 

In their words...
"We know you've got something interesting to say. Plinky is here to help you say it in a fun and compelling way."

3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book »

3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book » | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it
3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book. Cómic book layouts are pretty popular. And they work well for elearning courses. For one, they look different. It's that type of contrast that can hook your learners who might be bored with the standard-looking corporate elearning. On top of that a comic-like layout breaks the content into panels which allows you to control the pacing and flow of information as each panel progressively reveals more. It's a great way to still have the simplicity of a linear course, but make it seem more engaging.
