The the ICT Summit conference I attended this presentation by Julie Zilber and colleagues from 7th Floor Media.

A presentation and discussion of Safe Water Challenge, an online multimedia game-like simulation that demonstrates how rich multimedia games delivered over the Internet can overcome barriers to learning and address a significant need in First Nations communities.

This simulation: Safe Water Challenge illustrates so many elements of good design. I was itching to speak with Julie some more at the conference but never got a chance with the crowds of people. So I sent a note to Julie to see about sharing this simulation here. It's still work-in-progress --after some user testing they will be making some revisions.

Julie will join us in this seminar discussion to respond to any questions you have about the project.
