Mediabarn has led the design, development, and collaboration of online educational products and websites since we opened our doors almost 10 years ago. So, naturally when Educational Media Creations Company (founders of the awesome children’s musical group, Silly Bus) decided it was time to bring their music and educational knowledge to the world of educational apps, it was a great fit. We were very excited to kick off a mobile project with Silly Bus! There was so much to consider, such as what age group to target and what games would be educationally compelling. In addition, we wanted to showcase the fun, educational … Continue reading

Our Usability Lab does a lot of research with children, studying how they interact with games, sites, and educational products.   Today our Creative Services team is proud to announce the relaunch of staysafeonline.org, a site brought to you by the National Cyber Security Alliance. It is fascinating watching and studying kids use internet products, but we know that the increased use of online products by kids comes with some responsibility, and our partner Staysafeonline.org is at the forefront of educating children, parents, and educators about utilizing the internet safely and securely at home, work and school.

StaySafeOnline.org launches updated and expanded section: National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), conducted every October since 2001, is a national public awareness campaign to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure. This year’s theme is “Our Shared Responsibility”. The expanded section now contains an events calendar, links to become an official endorser, and collateral material downloads. Also check out the newly redesigned Top Tips page.

We couldn’t be happier with the feedback we’ve been getting on the success of the Uplifting Athletes site. We are please to announce that they have added a new chapter to their cause and site… Boston College Adding the new chapter to their existing site was fairly easy since we’re using Drupal to manage the site. We look forward to adding many more chapters to the site in the near future.

Another successful launch! The Software & Information Industry Association launched its redesigned web site last week (SIIA.net). Mediabarn was privileged to have partnered with SIIA to help with the user experience, design and development of the site. The project was definitely a team effort, with Mediabarn joining forces with not only SIIA, but Metisc as well, a Joomla! shop in Australia. Loved the early morning status calls! The new SIIA.net is not only more organized with a cleaner design, but also has a dynamic site structure that can easily be expanded on. Just about all of the site is driven … Continue reading

A little under 6-months after delivering the initial site redesign for the National Cyber Security Alliance‘s StaySafeOnline.org site, we’ve done it again. The initial project utilized an existing design from another firm. Mediabarn made some minor tweaks to the existing designs focusing on content organization and usability issues. We developed the site in Drupal, an open-source CMS, launching in late 2008. Since the initial launch we have continued to support NCSA with their site content needs and adding several bits of new functionality. The latest redesign brings a major new face lift to the site without changing the overall structure … Continue reading
