Online and Instructional Design

Boojum's work for education and the arts is wide-ranging, from consultancy in the design of learning materials, to the analysis, design and build of websites and intranets.

Our work with the National Gallery of Victoria is mainly design consultancy:

Boojum produced the website on New Literacies and Classroom Practice to help teachers understand the role of new media in education.

For the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Boojum developed the visual design and interface markup for the popular Victorian Premier's Reading Challenge.

A recent launch is the JEAA website and membership database. The JEAA (Journalism Education Association of Australia) works to raise the standard of teaching in journalism.
