Join this webinar to explore the tools, pedagogies, and results of a year-long design-based research project involving quest-based learning. Researchers at Boise State have built a digital learning system founded on game-based elements including quests, experience points, badges, achievements, leveling, and student choice.

Quest-based learning, an instructional design theory, leverages game mechanics and game-like learning communities to support student choice within the curriculum. View this webinar to explore the world of quest-based learning, allowing for a personal, self-paced, and adaptive experience.
