Queso: Introducing Game Design Principles into Curriculum

  1. Clay Ewing, University of Miami, United States

Educators that begin to implement gameful principles into their classrooms, as a means of increasing student motivation and engagement, face two potential problems: administrative burden and poor implementation. Queso is a new learning management system (LMS) that seeks to avoid these two pitfalls by incorporating gameful principles into a simple interface for class creation and management. This presents an opportunity for instructors not well versed in game design to easily adopt new pedagogical methods as a means of introspection to existing curriculum, which allows new teaching models to emerge.
