InsideVandy goes for the green

IV Green

In honor of Earth Day, Vanderbilt’s student media mothership InsideVandy presents a multimedia package called “The Green Tour.” There are stories, a video, audio slideshow, a map and a timeline. Each multimedia element pops up in a “lightbox” over the web page (Lightbox 2 source code here).

The entire thing is built into an HTML web page – not a Flash interface. This just proves that you don’t have to shoehorn everything into Flash to make a decent multimedia package.

Anyone else do something for Earth Day? Drop a comment or e-mail me – scmurley -at-, and I’ll post the links.
