Nordic Game Jam and Teaching

Discussion in 'Community Learning & Teaching' started by Cool Crazy Dude, Jan 28, 2006.

  1. It was a great experience comming to Copenhagen for the Nordic Game Jam. It was both a learning experience in Unity and it also gave me full insight as to how to start a class on Video Game Design. The universities starting off video game course should certainly look into Unity Game Engine and test the easy user friendly interface that it has. It was amazing to see what game developer and artist could do in two to three days. The collaberation between arist programmers, visualizers and others were great and worth the trip from USA.
    More schools and educatinal instiution should have these kind of game developer jam sessions. Contact me via this forum or post your e-mail and I will get in touch with you if you need more info on starting a video game course. Unity was great as a game engine tool and within two days people were making games on it.

    At Queen's University Belfast, we also intent to use Unity on our new Game Design degree. For creating fully immersive environments on any platform, I've seen nothing better, and the fact that it's on a Mac which we already use for pro-level audio and graphics is a bonus.
    I look forward to becoming much more familiar with Unity in the coming months.

    I should add that Graham is coming here for a three month period from March.

    To get to know Unity better, prepare his courses (so he'll become an expert in teaching with Unity soon), and do something creative with Unity on the side.

    Looking forwards to seeing you again, Graham :)
