Jorum is the JISC-sponsored national online repository of learning materials for UK education and research developed and managed jointly by EDINA and Mimas, the two JISC national academic data centres.
This multimedia supported pervasive game was created by five secondary school pupils of the Sint-Lievenscollege Ghent (Belgium) around the theme of bullying and racketeering to sensitise students against useless violence. Students participating in this 50-minute lifesize game had to search a fictitious murderer in their school through clues provided in mp3-files and video clips.
The five girls who created this game, set up a campaign to attract their fellow pupils to participate in the lifesize Cluedo game with flyers and a website. The story was that a boy in school who had bullied one of his classmates, was found dead at his school. There were four suspects, so fellow students had to find the actual killer. The creators had created video clues but separated audiotracks and videotracks so participants needed to download mp3 files in advance and once the game began at school, they could find the accompanying videos at different locations in the school and then link sound with video.
In the Dutch project website the mp3 tracks could be first downloaded (http://anti-anti.slc-gent.be - with frames - watch in Internet Explorer). The English project website shows the different videos and a segment about the game of the local news. All videos are Dutch.
This project won the MEDEA Special Jury Award 2008 and so an (English) interview with the pupils' teacher was recorded as part of the project's showcase: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/anti-anti. In the interview, he explains that the students used their own material as the school didn't have video or audiomaterial at the time.
