The Digital Learning Games international Master’s programme is offering a one­-week course on designing serious games.

Serious games are games designed for a purpose other than just entertainment. This purpose can relate to defense, education, science, health care, emergency management, urban planning, engineering, politics, and so on. In the Digital Learning Games programme, we combine game design with interaction design and educational psychology to create serious games for education. This short course is based on some of the material used in the programme.
