The certificate in learning in game-based system environments prepares educators to effectively use educational games in and out of the classroom and training center. The program provides an overview of game development processes, enables participants to build basic games, and most importantly, examines how to assess and evaluate the learning experience as it relates to educational games.
The certificate program culminates with a capstone project in which students produce their own basic educational game and subsequently formulate an evaluative process to address its effectiveness.
