It's the 6th year running and we are happy to announce that the Lectora Carnival and Awards Ceremony 2011 was a great success! After a three-year hiatus, we are back at the Fullerton Hotel on 25th March. This year, similar to previous years, sees participants from various sectors joining in the event, adding strength to the fact that Lectora's ease of use applies across the board.
We started off with two workshops in the morning. The first workshop is conducted using Lectora Inspire; the latest version of Lectora where participants can pick up basic skills to create interactive content. The second workshop covered more advance skills for existing Lectora users, which sees an increase in demand ever since we started the workshop sessions. Responses and feedback from both workshops' participants were fantastic as most commented that they have learnt a lot in the workshops.
After an interlude, we kick-start this year's carnival, "Colours of Learning" with the introduction of four new games - "eLC Shootout" (a game designed in TorqueEngine), "SMARTphone Hunt" (QR Coding), "eLC Colours" and "eLC Pursuit" (both created using Lectora) on top of other staple games such as the modified Command and Conquer game featuring the latest Leopard tanks. Besides plain enjoyment of playing and garnering learning tips on how to create interactive games, participants can also use the various colour coupons they win from playing the games to exchange them for prizes.
Beat your opponent in a shootout within 10 seconds.
Can you differentiate the colour of the words from the words itself? A stroop effect test that boggles the brain.
eLC Pursuit (the hottest game for the day): A game to test your trivial knowledge.
Smartphone users only! Spot all the QR codes located anywhere within the ballroom and claim a special prize.
