Further education colleges have the opportunity to see if gaming in the classroom could offer a new way of teaching and learning thanks to a pilot being run by JISC Collections.

The pilot, on the benefit of using educational online games and resources will run from January 2013 – December 2013 and will be made available via JISC Collections’ online catalogue.

Colleges will have the opportunity to review these games and resources from November 2012 until the end of 2013 and can sign up for online access or to license the software.
