Looking to Use an Educational Game for Digital Interactive Learning?
From classroom to boardroom and beyond, educational games allow you to make learning fun for youngsters and adults alike.
Whether it’s just to communicate ideas and help make the general public think, or part of a more academic course, games can be an extremely useful tool to make learning more practical & engaging.
Just some of the ways you can use games to educate are:
- Educate on Social, Economic & Environmental Issues
- Help Customers Understand Your Business & Products
- Engaging Educational Content for Interactive Kiosks
- Part of a Fully Structured e-Learning Course
If you’re looking to develop an educational game for a website, or for offline use, we can help.
Why Use Games for Learning?
Learning isn’t always the most exciting of activities. So why not consider bringing the subjects to life with visuals, animation, sound and real interaction.
Instead of using traditional passive educational materials (consisting of static words, pictures and diagrams on a page or screen), games allow you to create immersive experiences to help reinforce traditional learning methods.
We can also work with you to design characters to help pull in learners. These can either be used directly as controllable game characters, or as a way to delivery textual information and instructions, guiding the player through the game.
Aren’t Games Just for Kids?
It’s a common misconception that video games are just for kids. In fact nothing could be further from the truth. The majority of people who play video games are adults and the average gamer is in their 30’s. This makes games ideal for targeting all ages, not just kids.
How Can We Use Custom Educational Computer Games?
If you have some information to get across to the public in an engaging way, your game can be published on your website or for use as downloadable offline applications.
So if you want to get across information about your business and products to new and existing customers, games can help.
This also provides a good opportunity to incorporate some promotional element to your game and integrate it with your marketing.
Or maybe you just want to educate the public on life issues relating to the environment, people’s finances or some other social matter? We can create games for public use that help you communicate this information.
Educational video games provide a great fun, engaging and memorable way to instil broad company values in employees, train on specific company procedures or processes, and more.
If you provide training or education to third parties as part of your business we can work with you to produce engaging interactive games, for you to deliver as part of your programs. We create games to reinforce training materials, for use as part of a current e-learning program, to be incorporated with existing backend systems, and more.
In the Classroom
Engaging kids and keeping them interested in learning provides it’s own unique challenges. So why not put the fun into learning for children with educational games.
Educational interactive games can be a great alternative to static informational content for PC based digital kiosks.
Games provide the ultimate way to captivate your audience by bringing the information to life with visuals, sound and interaction. This can be useful in a variety of situations including getting across business or product information at trade shows, providing a more engaging way to show information at museums and other attractions and provide educational fun as part of a children’s play area.
Where Can We Use Educational Digital Games?
Publish your game online to allow easy access and compatibility with both desktop computers and modern smartphones and tablets, from the same version.
Mobile Devices & Tablets
Targeting mobile devices allows you to support the most common way people now consume interactive content.
Build your game as a standard Windows PC application to allow offline play for a huge variety of uses and situations, from use in museums or as a fun interactive element for a kid’s play area to classroom use.
What Tech Do You Use to Develop Educational Games?
HTML5 allows us to develop educational web games that work in the browser across a wide range of devices, from desktop PCs to modern mobile devices. We can also build as offline Windows PC applications for game kiosks, exhibitions, live marketing events and more.
We no longer recommend using Flash on the web in most cases, but Adobe AIR is great choice for cross-platform application game development.
Other Game Engines
We also have access to additional game engines and platforms (such as Unity) where required.
