On February 27, 2017 SEAMOLEC was celebrating its 20th anniversary, and to enliven the celebration, SEAMOLEC has launched three (3) competitions; Whiteboard Animation Competition, Digital Book Competition, and Edugame Competition since December 2016. The competitions were open for Southeast Asian teachers and students who are not professional animator, digital book developer, or game creators.
The first competition is whiteboard animation, which is a process where a creative story and storyboard with pictures is drawn on a whiteboard (or something that resembles a whiteboard) by people who record themselves in the process of their artwork. It can be used as one of learning media to deliver learning material in a unique way. Other terms of whiteboard animation are video scribing, and animated doodling. These video animation styles are now seen in many variations, and have taken a turn into many other animation styles. The theme of this competition was “Developing ICT culture as a part of 21st century competency in Southeast Asia”.
The second competition is Digital book development. Digital book is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices. Digital books are usually intended to be read on dedicated e-reader devices. However, almost any sophisticated computer device that features a controllable viewing screen can also be used to read digital books, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. This competition was divided into 2 different them: for teachers, the content of digital book must be about the development of related subjects taught in schools, while for students the content of digital book should be the development of related subjects taught in schools.
The last competition is Edugame. Edu-Game as a combination form from 2 words, Education and Game, is a game where education materials/concept fused with the concept of a game. As a game made for player with intention to have fun, Edu-Game is stressed in interactive and fun way and how Education concept/material will be delivered to player. It will be another unique way to deliver learning media to students. The theme for this competition was “Learning is FUN”.
