Duration: 20 mins
Featuring a guild design and rich media, the GAMESMOOC series of three Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC) employed an activity-based learning approach to provide learners with a multisensory experience. Participants played a variety of commercial games, including the World of Warcraft and Minecraft, and reflected on the use of games, game-based learning motifs, gamification and immersive 3D environments in which players and lurkers are welcome. Take a tour of the GAMESMOOC and learn how the conceptual course design, roles, activities, and energy grew throughout this vibrant series of free online courses that leveraged popular games for educational use.
