Learning curve

March 17, 2000

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) has made two key academic appointments in the run-up to the 2000 Interactive Entertainment Awards.

Roy Stringer, creative director and chief hypermedia architect at Amaze Limited, a spin-off company from Liverpool John Moores University, and Stephen Heppell, director of Ultralab, the technology research centre based at Anglia Polytechnic University, join the steering committee. They will help judge the interactive education categories, including the Learning Award.

Bafta interactive entertainment committee chair Sue Thexton said: "Bafta Interactive actively supports the use of interactive multimedia to enhance the learning experience. The appointments put us in an even stronger position to nurture and support interactive media in education."

Professor Heppell and Mr Stringer join David Oliver of the Performance Group and Martin Freeth of the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts.
