I am a psychologist in Sydney, Australia, and have researched the use of games and multimedia in both the Health and Educational sectors. I offer demo samples as Creative Commons resources that teachers and therapists can freely use. For example, I applied many of these principles to music education with the resultant publication of a new way of learning music. Total beginners can begin playing by ear in minutes with this system. A learner can use the online free resource directly but it may well be useful to teachers and community group leaders who need to get people participating without a lengthy learning curve. Other examples focus on simple methods of multimedia production and do-it-yourself creation of online games using free resources.
