SGD200 Game-Based Learning


This course examines games through the lens of learning theories, and explores ways that both learning games and entertainment games can teach and inform players. You will learn to design learning games that are entertaining, but also grounded in theory. You will play, analyse, and evaluate games, as well as develop a concept and prototype for a digital game or design learning experiences around an existing game. This course is useful for those who wish to design games to persuade, inform, teach or change behaviour. It is also useful for those who wish to use games for teaching or training purposes.
