A number of our learning projects have required us to develop simple computer games. We have collected a sample of these upon this page.

The game can be a stimulating and entertaining way for the student to learn about a chosen subject, or it can simply act as an interactive 'jewel' to keep a user focused on an issue. Single-party games use a game model of user vs computer to uncover some regularities in the learning topic. At its simplest, this could be a quiz, and at its most sophisticated it could be a motivational layer on a simulation. Muli-party games are much more challenging, in that they can exploit competitiveness between users. We have just begun to explore this potential.
