Project: Comic style animation, interactivity and interspersed text screens.
The module follows ‘Dodgy Sinclair’, a shifty character who knows the ins and outs of IT security through his involvement in the underworld. Content is presented through captioned comic style panels which use an engaging and up-to-date illustration style. The inside of Dodgy’s truck acts as a visual menu whereby learners select each item to access associated content presented in animated scenes. The interactive ‘menu’ items are visual metaphors for IT security risks, for example, a wooden horse to represent the trojan virus.
The visual style and interactivity provides an engaging and immersive learning experience. Importantly it formed part of a wider series of modules developed using the same visual themes and numerous other characters.
