BBC Jam :: Planning & implementation of a BBC Jam project

It was my responsibility to help Illumina Digital, a top digital content provider, plan and implement a Digital Curriculum Project for the BBC’s Jam site. The cutting-edge commission involved users collaborating on a series of missions through which they could learn or test themselves on all aspects of the science curriculum. The project featured interactive video feeds with real-time updates and all content was localised for English, Welsh, Scottish and Gaelic speakers. I was also responsible, after my work at Microsoft, for writing the web service classes that the project was built on.

Microsoft :: Technical Consultant

The Digital Curriculum (including the now defunct BBC Jam) provided e-learning for all schools in the UK. It delivers high quality video, audio and interactive educational content over the Web. I was employed as part of the IM Group, to work as a consultant for Microsoft (and whilst there, Hewlett Packard). I advised and instructed the project managers on the best way to implement a Flash GUI throughout the Digital Curriculum. I was also responsible for developing a range of Flash/JavaScript API’s in ActionScript 2 for integrating the projects Web Services for use by all content providers.
