Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 25, 2010
Drexel University Online, a leader in online degree programs, has added a new online certificate to its offerings, the Graduate Certificate in Learning in Game-Based Environments, from Drexel’s Goodwin College: School of Education.
The Graduate Certificate in Learning in Game-Based Environments will benefit educators, instructional technologists, and corporate trainers interested in integrating learning in a game-based environment in and out of the classroom or training settings. Students will be introduced to the foundation of games for learning, motivation research that influences games, learning theories and instructional design principles, the role of play and learning in a participatory culture, and design research and evaluation of learning technologies. The certificate will prepare teachers to expand their existing skill set to incorporate educational games in their current positions or to become leaders working in fields such as educational publishing and corporate training.
Similar to Drexel’s other online programs, this fully-accredited Graduate Certificate in Learning in Game-Based Environments is offered entirely online, and is intended for working professionals. Students will have 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion, instructor feedback, and exams.
“We’re very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format,” said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director for Drexel University Online. “All of our online programs, including our Graduate Certificate in Learning in Game-Based Environments, are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses.”
Applications for Drexel’s Graduate Certificate in Learning in Game-Based Environments are now being accepted. For more information, visit Drexel’s online degree website, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (877) 215-0009.
