Multimedia and e-content experts from around the world have selected SFU’s interactive museum website, Journey into Time Immemorial, to win an e-content and e-creativity award from the United Nations’ World Summit on the Information Society. The society’s 34 international judges selected the virtual museum site from among 545 entries as a worldwide example of outstanding e-content. Depicting First Nations life hundreds of years ago, the website was a collaboration between the SFU Museum of Archaeology and the Xa:ytem Longhouse Interpretive Centre in Mission, B.C. The SFU Learning and Instructional Development Centre’s Media Design group created the site. The website has won numerous global awards, including a major international multimedia award last fall from the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
