Welcome!

In Uncategorized on March 22, 2010 by gamingtheclassroom

Welcome to Gaming the Classroom!  This blog was created in response to the overwhelming interest in Multiplayer Game Design, a game design course taught by Lee Sheldon at Indiana University that is modeled like an MMO.  Every student has an avatar name, creates group projects in their guilds, and earns XP for their grade.

For more information on the course itself, please see the Syllabus and Notes and Observations pages above.

Lee Sheldon’s game design class was mentioned in the “Design Outside the Box” presentation at DICE 2010 by Jesse Schell, game designer and professor at Carnegie Melon – welcome to everyone who is visiting here because of that talk!

We’ve created a forum to share ideas about the use of games to teach, please contribute your thoughts!
