Game-based learning is a form of game play with specific learning outcomes. It is typically instructionally designed to provide a balance between subject matter that needs to be learned, playing games, and the capability of the learners to apply the knowledge and skills in the real world.  Whether you’re rolling dice or racing against the clock, adding gamification elements to e-learning courses is a great way to keep learners focused and motivated.

This program will focus on:

  • Elements of game-based learning
  • Critical aspects in game creation
  • Demonstration of two games:  Jeopardy and Dusty the Dragon
