ePublishing Pearson Student Prizes Announced

Pearson Education, a publishing company with local offices in Oxford, has been involved with the MA epublishing module here at Brookes for the eighth year running. Small teams of students worked on proposals for new online educational resources and developed prototype websites based on Pearson's Heinemann range of books.

At the end of the course the prototype websites were presented and in addition to each one being graded as normal, Stephen Fahey, Development and Technology Director, and Elaine Anderson, Head of Content Development, from Pearson were in attendance to choose first and second prize winners.

Stephen Fahey from Pearson said:

"I was very impressed by the quality and range of ideas that were presented. The students demonstrated very clear thinking about the needs of their customers, and how to address those needs through innovative online solutions."

The first prize of £350 went to Dalia Heiba and  Helen Swain for their website which was based on the Heinemann GSCE Textiles Technology for OCR book and Teacher's Resource file.

Second prize of £150 went to Isabel Martinez Gonzalez and Stella Huang for their elearning and ecommerce website to accompany Heinemann's hairdressing publications.
