Title: Using the Euroversity Framework to Design a Short Course on Game Design in Virtual Worlds

by Dr. Darren Mundy


The Euroversity ( Framework is a tool designed to support the design, development and delivery of courses in Virtual World environments. This seminar will talk through a short course delivered using the framework to support its construction. The course provided an opportunity for students to think carefully about how virtual world environments could be manipulated for design purposes, in this case through the medium of games design. Challenges encountered included thinking critically about how to encourage students in creative exploration and development within the selected environment of Second Life; understanding of the tools needed to create collaboratively in team based activities; dealing with the foibles of particular environments; and developing resilience to the issues presented when working in virtual world spaces.
