The team behind Alice in Typhoidland have received a Gold Medal at the Learning Technologies Awards 2020.

This ongoing and expanding project includes animations, games, and virtual tours to explore the history of typhoid, using the character of Alice Liddell to guide learners through the story. Whilst originally designed to support a physical exhibition, recent additions include a ‘Covid Corner’, explaining immunity and vaccines through interactive comics and games.

Researchers from the University of Oxford collaborated with designer Ben Leighton, Discover ELearning and Renderheads to create a series of games that the judges described as ‘refreshing’, with ‘beautiful’ design and graphics.

TORCH is proud to have provided funding to support the project’s award-winning animation ‘The Adventures of Alice in Typhoidland’. The full website can be viewed here.
