1. Featured Projects
These are some of the most interesting things I have been involved with: a multimedia studio, an English Corner and a creative Writing website.
2. School-related Video Production
Most of video work is related to my job as a teacher in a Hong Kong secondary school. I set up a very small multimedia studio a few years ago (described here: longzijun.wordpress.com/projects/lamwoo-studio/). In addition to supervising student work, I also use the equipment there to create videos for the school.
3. Animation, Computer Game Design and Online Learning
I’ve experimented with different kinds of software to produce promotional and educational material.
- Online Writing Workshop (1999-2001, now offline): An online peer review system for a college creative writing course
- Tense Finder Grammar Website (2005-2006, now offline): An interactive tool for learning about verb tenses
- MissionMaker Mini-games (2008-2010): First person adventure games made using the MissionMaker software
- Promotional Videos (2010-2012) an English activity promotional video and a video made to introduce the school’s Geographic Information Systems room.
- Experiments with Animation Software (2008): Animated dictations (produced with CrazyTalk) and animation (produced with iClone)
