What Will You Learn?
Principles of Game Design
Applications of Knowledge
Advanced Programming Fundamentals
Professional Grade Tools
Before any code is even written, game concepts go through early planning and prototyping phases. Students will learn about game design throughout the entire development cycle, from the very beginning on how to evaluate a good project, to building good levels that support their games' core design, to case studies on the various successes and failures of design in popular games on the market today.
You've learned the basics, now it's time to flex your coding muscles! Students taking their first steps into and exploring the world of game development will have the chance to use existing Scratch/Python/Java/JS/C# skills to solve advanced challenges that not only push their skills further, but also give a deeper understanding of the design principles important to making successful games.
Time to step up your game! Students will learn to use Industry Level tools called game engines, such as Unity and the Unreal Engine. Students will also have the opportunity to learn web-focused game engines such as Phaser and embed their games directly into their websites!
What Learning Materials Are Included?
Our method of instruction is succinct and feeds personal motivation: Course + Challenge + Badge
Learners will engage learning pathways providing guidance and options for self-led learners. Courses may be engaged based on interest of learner at any pace desired. Challenges initiate an unlimited mentor feedback loop whereby learners demonstrate understanding of concepts and mentors provide personal guidance where needed. Micro-credentials, or badges are them earned and evidence of skill mastery is attached to badge for documenting skills over time.
