Interactive Video with Quiz

A3MG designed and programmed this custom video player that features interactive quizzes for HHMI BioInteractive short films.

Embedded quiz modules test students’ understanding as they watch the short film on the rock pocket mouse—a living example of Darwin’s process of natural selection.

This project has been redesigned to comply with the WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines and includes screenreader accessibility, subtitles, and an audio description (AD) version of the film.

How We Get Our Skin Color Interactive

This interactive animation about the biology of skin color provides stop points at which students can further explore the material through additional text and illustrations, videos, questions, and simple interactive widgets.

Narrated by the world’s leading authority on the evolution of human skin color, Dr. Nina Jablonski, this animation describes how and where melanin is produced in our cells and what factors affect our skin color.

A3MG provided interface design, graphic design, and the programming of this custom interactive video app.

Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

The Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab was developed by a team of scientists, educators, graphic artists, and film makers to explore the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean.  A3MG provided interface design and graphics as well as the programming of BioInteractive’s latest virtual lab.

The virtual lab includes four modules that investigate different concepts in evolutionary biology, including adaptation, convergent evolution, phylogenetic analysis, reproductive isolation, and speciation. Each module involves data collection, calculations, analysis and answering questions.
