Gamespark Introduces Innovative Online Course Platform to Make Video Games
Gamespark launches online platform to help students and video game fans make their own games at www.gamespark.com.
As long time users already know, gamespark.com started out as a multi player game site, community, and chat site. Since 1999, millions of gaming enthusiasts, game providers, and fans, have loved being a part of the community, and continue playing on Gamespark.
Building on the long history of service to the video game community, Gamespark is introducing a new online program which allows anyone to become a game creator. Video game fans of all ages can now easily make their own games, at home, with the help of Gamespark's easy-to-follow video tutorials and game-ready resources.
The program was created by Gamespark executive team members with strong backgrounds in academia, with years of teaching experience at well known universities.
The video game making suite of services incorporates a platform to host game design courses, and game making courses, all created by industry pros and veterans. The courses are a unique combination of video tutorials, and tasks, and are easy to follow at the student's own pace. The software used to make the games is a no code suite of tools provided by Gamespark. No code is a state of the art trend in game design, which helps make the creative process easier by eliminating the more code heavy requirements associated with game design and deployment.
For independent students, access to the tutorials will be free for the trial courses, and more content can be unlocked starting at just $39.
For schools, http://www.gamespark.com also has special packages for educators interested teaching game design as part of their school curriculum.
The course packages offer students the opportunity to learn how to make a variety of video games, including platform games, 3D games, and racing games. There are even interactive assignments to review what students have learned. This will allow school instructors to measure learning outcomes. The Gamespark school course modules will cost as little as $5.99 per seat, which include access to the tutorials for a full year.
This Gamespark program and concept is being met with enthusiasm from students and educators as it provides a way to fill in a gap in the curriculum for school programs.
