Hey, everyone, I’ve set up a group for us in 3D GameLab, for those of you who would like to try out the system for yourselves. For those who didn’t see my comment on an earlier post, 3D GameLab is a new learning management system using game mechanics and quest-based learning principles, designed at the Educational Technology department at Boise State University.
I’ve added 15 or so simple quests, all revolving around what we’re doing and discussing at THATCamp Games, and anyone who would like to participate is welcome. Some of the quests can be completed before the meetings begin while others can only be done after participating in THATCamp Games sessions. You can do as many or as few quests as you like, and as you do you’ll see how the badges, rewards and point bar work in this system.
3D GameLab is in closed beta testing right now, so I do have to invite you in. If you are interested in seeing how it works from the inside, just email me at suzanne.waldenberger @ yc.edu (take out the spaces) and I’ll add you to the group.
