Discovering Game: Game Design for Librarians, a Simmons GSLIS online CE class
Course Description: Learn to engage youth at the library with interactive, multimedia, content creation workshops: video game design! Not all librarians embrace the same “learn by failing” method that gamers employ; this six-week course will introduce you to the fundamentals of game design and provide guided access to free tools (such as Ben 10 Game Creator, Scratch, Cube, Gimp) that you can use at your library for game design workshops. Content will be delivered through audio lecture, slideshows and video capture, as well as hands on-game play, exercises, and assignments using game design software.
