Here at Juno Web Design we’re proud to work with leaders in a whole range of industries, and in the world of English learning one of the biggest is arguably Macmillan Readers. A global publisher of English language teaching (ELT) resources and curriculum it’s grown to offer a range of digital and online materials to really enhance learning, and we’ve recently been able to work with them on a subdomain project for their Owl Hall Reader. The result has caught the attention of industry experts, and we’re pleased to say that it’s been nominated for a British Council award for innovation.
Owl Hall is an interactive learning experience like never before. It’s a multi-media, multi-channel experience—it doesn’t stop at the usual Reader but instead incorporates a carefully-designed website with an interactive blog as well as podcasts for audio serialisation, giving learners the chance to engage on a whole new level. They’re able to listen and watch as well as read to really add something extra to the learning experience and enhance their level of understanding, ultimately giving them the skills they need to learn and communicate effectively. We’re proud of the innovative experience we’ve been able to create, and not only was the client happy but the British Council was too…
The ELTons are a series of international awards run by the British Council that “recognise and celebrate innovation in the field of English language teaching”, and Owl Hall has been nominated. The Reader has been shortlisted for the Innovation in Learner Resources award and we’re thrilled to have been a part of their rise to recognition, and we can’t wait to see who takes home the crown when the winners are announced in May. In the meantime, if you want to see what we can do for you in terms of innovation and intuitive design, just get in touch and see if we can make a difference.
