GAMMA Program and Lumo Create Web App

The University of Texas at Austin’s Game and Mobile Media Applications (GAMMA) Program recently worked with Lumo, an online, interactive presentation service, to build an interactive web app that lets users explore some of the past GAMMA events, student groups, and current industry partners.

“We wanted to create something more dynamic than a static pdf file to represent the multiple events that the GAMMA Program hosts and the variety of companies that partner with us,” said Dr. Paul Toprac, Associate Director and Senior Lecturer of the GAMMA Program. “Luckily, we found Lumo through our Executive Board Chair, Jerry Bowerman.”

Lumo, a growing local Austin company, allows users to create presentations using an entire scene instead of being confined to slides. As such, users can create immersive presentations with instant surveys, audience feedback, animation, transitions, and events.

“At Lumo, we wanted to create the most powerful presentation service for the modern Web,” said Jerry Bowerman, CEO at sonarDesign, Inc. “We were happy to collaborate with the GAMMA Program on creating a new way of presenting their program online.”
