Bernie Dodge at San Diego State has been teaching the course Exploratory Learning Through Educational Simulation & Games for quite a few years.

During the course students create a board game and an e-game.

Here is the evaluation rubric for the e-game project. I thought it was a good starting point for evaluating games. Perhaps this group could create its own rubric for game evaluation?

This is the link to the entire course site.
http://edweb.sdsu.edu/courses/edtec670/e-game-rubric.html
It covers
  • "motivational design" (think game mechanics). I had not been to the site in awhile and was really interested to see this addition.
  • Board games
  • E-games

Excellent rubric, and thanks for sharing. Would be nice to create a group rubric for the one of the games we will play together.

I think your 2nd link also goes to the rubric. Here's the actual course link:

I'm amazed by how much information is already out there. Studying overload this weekend. :)

Thank you for reminding me of this course! It's on my list of courses to examine when I get to creating a game-based learning course of my own :)
At th risk of derailing this conversation, I am wondering what should go into a game-based learning and Instrtuctional design course. I've spoken to people who teach in EDU programs and people who teach in game creation programs (with some courses focusing on educational games). It would suffice to say that everyone has some elements in common, and many different. I wonder if anyone else is interested in collaboratively creating a core games and sims in edu course outline :)

Why don't you start a google doc. We can take from here what works. This MOOC is 5 weeks, so it won't have the breadth of what would be included if 15 -16 weeks was available.

Topics that are going to be covered in the next few weeks are:

Intro to Games Based Learning
COTS and MMORPGs
Gamification
Epistemic Games
ARGs

We do have a rubric on engagement and immersion that will be putting up with Week 2. So people can have a look at that.

We are planning on having follow-up MOOC where we will go further in depth for those who are interested.
One in the fall specifically on immersion and engagement in MMORPGs with snadboxes and virtual worlds
One in spring on building Alternate Reality Games
and then taking what we learned here and doing this Games MOOC again next summer.

I missed the follow up to the rubric post until today. I think that AK raises an interesting question about what goes into the course. I want to give that some thought.

My first thought is to review the work of Roger Schank on Story-Centered Curriculum building. It follows an actual work experience. Very persuasive ideas. A course on instructional design would begin by presenting the performance issue to be changed. The course might progress through analysis, design development and so on. Instead of introduction to learning theory etc. They would look into that as it was needed to continue the project.

Just to continue to change the topic :-) Now that I have the "dashboad" page on netvibes, I can see the new threads. Unfortunately I cant see when something is added to a specific thread. My wish would be for something that allowed my to "follow a thread that I had posted in. Otherwise, I think this site makes for a great learning platform.

I put in a small skeleton (things typically found in syllabi and course outlines)
