LifeLearn wins awards for three multimedia education programs
GUELPH, Ontario, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — LifeLearn, Inc. announced that it has received three Communicator Awards of Distinction for multimedia educational programs that the company developed for Bayer Animal Health (Bayer), Nestle Purina, and Novartis Animal Health (Novartis) during 2011. These programs used multimedia games, activities, and simulations to teach scientific principles to healthcare staff.
For example, Bayer’s Parasite Scene Investigation online accredited continuing education program mimicked the popular show “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” to teach veterinary technicians to correctly identify, diagnose, and treat common parasites found in pets. Nestle Purina’s Veterinary Diets Challenge computerized game was used at industry trade shows to engage attendees while teaching them about proper pet nutrition. And the Novartis It’s a Pet’s Life game is a team-based activity that educates veterinarians and their staff members on parasite prevention and treatment.
“Every educational program, meeting, and event we produce is geared toward enhancing the education of our clients’ target audiences to achieve corporate goals, and we’re thrilled to receive this recognition for our creative, results-oriented work,” said Leah Stephenson, chief creative officer at LifeLearn. “Bringing learning to life through fun activities and multimedia stimulation results in better retention and application of knowledge. The value we provide to clients is simply marrying complex scientific principles with creative learning techniques for longer-lasting results.”
The Communicator Awards are judged and overseen by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), a 550+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts. Current IAVA membership includes representatives from acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms such as Conde Nast, Coach, Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Estee Lauder, HBO, Keller Crescent, Monster.com, MTV, Polo Ralph Lauren, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Tribal DDB, Victoria’s Secret, Wired, Yahoo!, and many others.
