Serious Games

As part of my Master’s in Educational Technology coursework, I am taking the Certificate in Serious Games. What are the best ways to use games in education? How can I develop games for my own classes and units?

This certificate involves three different courses: Foundations of Serious Games, Understanding Users, and Theories of Games and Interaction for Design.

Or, as the course instructors say, becoming a Serious Games Monster, Wizard, and Ninja. This fall, I am training to be a Wizard and Ninja; in spring 2014 I will grow into a full-blown Serious Games Monster. Click on the characters below to go to the relevant portfolio pages containing my work.
