About My Project:

Posted in background, Msc by zzjames on August 10, 2012

The title of my project is: ‘The Development of a tool to facilitate the production of animated interactive learning materials, games and simulations’

The aim of my project is: To develop software to facilitate teachers, developers, educators and learning technologists in the production of animations, simulations and games as learning material.

The Objective of my project is: To develop a game engine for use in an educational context.

My intention is to ultimately situate a game engine and authoring tools within a online virtual learning environment (VLE) providing not just tools for creating and displaying this content but also assisting with feedback to the VLE to monitor students progress using the material, even potentially setting learners the task of authoring their own content – and getting feedback from this.
