Multi-User Virtual Environments & Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games Room

In recent years, a sharp increase in the number of academic studies around the use of video games and new media for educational purposes has greatly expanded our understanding of their potential for enhancing learning. At the same time, the field of foreign language pedagogy has been racing to keep pace with the numerous opportunities afforded by the internet and interactive media forms. Surprisingly, however, there has been little cross-over between the two bodies of academic literature.

The Multi-User Virtual Environments Room seeks to employ many of the latest theories in game studies and new media literacies alongside theories of language learning to enrich both research and praxis.

If you find that you need anything, or if you have any questions about how to do what you need to do, a student worker is located in AMB 1B, ready to assist you.
