Topic: *Educational multiplayer games online"
Educational games provide low cost educational opportunities, if they
succeed in motivating learners. They should be especially useful on
websites where the target audience wants to learn about the topic. Or
they could be helpful for a parent or mentor to help a learner.
Playing a game with other learners or with a mentor could add
motivation. With the arrival of web-worlds, such a game could be
played in a virtual environment The players could be either a learner
and mentor or fellow learners. The advantage the web-world would offer
is ease of access.
The web-world can be available at home, on a Chromebook.
Can we find adequate instructional resources to support this kind learning?
