Webinar Recording Details

Description

Everyone wants a learning game, but few stand ready with a big budget and game creation wizards. We all want fun, engaging, skill-building games, and there are many types of game frameworks to employ, yet not all are appropriate to every type of content. This webinar has two parts:
 
  • Part 1 — Matching content with the right type of game.
  • Part 2 — Converting instructional objectives into serious learning games.

It helps those investing in learning games be sure they’re not just getting a game with minimal learning impact, and it helps instructional designers use the skills they already have to design meaningful, memorable, and motivational games.
