Thursday 22nd April 2004: Leading animal welfare charity RSPCA has commissioned interactive agency M-Corp to re-define its online education programme, taking advantage of schools’ fast-growing interest in e-learning opportunities.
Paul Brightmore, Creative Director for M-Corp, remarks, “We are using a series of sophisticated diagnostic and research tools to expose powerful ways of engaging and informing children, tapping into their natural enthusiasm for animals. Teachers are playing a vital role in this process by providing us with valuable insights into the world of teaching. The results will be used to create a ground breaking site for teachers meeting the needs of the National Curriculum and the RSPCA, through targeted lesson planning tools and material.
“Our website is an ideal medium through which to interact with schools,” comments David Allen, Head of the Education Department at RSPCA. “The aim is to provide a dynamic and exciting platform for teachers and pupils to learn more about animal welfare. Coupling this with the assurance that all material fits with the National Curriculum is imperative. We were very impressed with M-Corp’s strong understanding of our mission and they put forward some great ideas from a design and content perspective.”
Brian Townshend, the M-Corp Account Director, comments, “We have several major charity sector clients who are fast realising the value of the web and other interactive platforms from a fundraising, learning and awareness perspective. The RSPCA is spearheading thinking in the field. It is critical that we use the potential of these new communications technologies to maximum effect, so understanding the way children think and what switches them on, as well as what teachers really need, is at the heart of our research.”
The project is expected to go live in Q3 2004. For further information regarding M-Corp please call Brian Townshend on 01425 477766 or visit www.m-corp.com.
