On November 15th, 2018, the Abizgame team led by Dr. Collin WONG has organized a seminar regarding the Abizgame Platform idea and development at The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong. Over 30 scholars from different universities have participated.
In addition to introducing the theoretical background such as blended learning and game based learning, Dr. Collin WONG also explained the convenience of building a “BLOCK-based” platform, where teachers only need to apply programming principles to drag and drop, and rearrange the BLOCKs, without having to worry about the syntax and codes on the command line. Furthermore, the Abizgame team demonstrated how to create a multi-BLOCKs game with the Teacher-Panel, and let the participants experienced the gameplay together.
Certain faculties expressed their interests in applying the games in their teaching and provided some valuable comments after the game trial section. A faculty member from the Department of Management at HSUHK expressed her admiration of the Platform and contended that a Platform as such would really help the teaching of her field.
