You’re no longer the player, you’re the designer! Learn how to design and build your own game, even if you have no coding or design experience. You’ll learn hands-on how to create and import your own assets and how to build games that others like to play.
This course will introduce students to the principles and practices of portable game design on phones, tablets, and PCs. Using the online block-based programming site, Scratch, students will build knowledge and skills in game design and development including planning, testing, level design, and basic physics. As part of the course, students will create personalized game assets (images and sounds) and learn how to import them into an original game that others can play.
This is a Digital Media Academy self-paced learning experience, designed to build foundational knowledge and skills through hands-on, project-based activities and interactive online excercises.
