The Global Learning Forum Team has created a game simulation kit in Second Life. Doctoral students from Colorado Technical University and their instructor, Dr. Cynthia Calongne, performed an alpha test of the game on March 9, 2009.
The results and highlights from the game of Operation Codename: Anaconda are featured in this presentation to the New Media Consortium's Symposium on New Media & Learning, March 25, 2009.
Game simulation kits offer opportunities for hosting a variety of games within one virtual world environment.
Many thanks to the GLF Team and Dr. Andrew Stricker for the game briefing slides and Nancy Smith for the assessment rubrics. Use of the assessment rubrics continues in future tests.
