Comments from Judging Panel
This is a cost effective and marketable product that benefits the service users and also the provider. Fully utilizing the touch screen technology, the usability of the website and the games, as well as users' interest in ICT are largely enhanced.
This project addresses an important aspect of digital inclusion, i.e. providing content and application that can attract the interest of the seniors in ICT. The creativity of the project is much appreciated. However, it is suggested to make an English version so as to extend the service to English-speaking community.
