What’s in a Game?: Strategies for Meaningful Use of Digital Interactivity

That which we call purposeful play to support learning objectives by any other name would smell as sweet. But what is involved in developing game-based strategies? And how can you ensure that you are using games in a meaningful way?

In this interactive webinar, we will examine the relevance of engagement in web-based learning and consider game-based tenets as an approach to address learner engagement. We define meaningful games and address approaches to measure. The discussion will culminate in a proposed framework for designing engaging web-based courses that leverage techniques for digital interactivity and storytelling.

After attending the session, you will be able to:

  • Interpret the relationship between engagement and digital interactivity.
  • Identify the role of digital interactivity and storytelling in meaningful games.
  • Utilize a framework for incorporating digital interactivity and storytelling in a game-based learning solution.


Registration opens on June 5th.
