Helping you design your digital teaching videos

Feeding Under Fire: A First World War is a cooking web series which teaches viewers how to make trench food and learn about those who had to eat it during the First World War.

FOF was one of the earliest digital engagement platforms that Simon (and later SCE Consultants) developed. Each episode was a learning curve and the series continued to improve. By the end of the series the resource had been used for teaching internationally and have been viewed thousand of times.

Currently, a new series of Feeding Under Fire is in development.
