Starting this fall, every student at Olds College in Olds, Alta., will have to complete a Farmville-esque iPad game in order to graduate.
...Darren Wershler, and English professor at Concordia University in Montreal, acknowledged there are still relatively few course where games appear regularly.
“But I think that will start changing fairly dramatically,” he added.
In Wershler’s contemporary Canadian fiction class at Concordia University in Montreal, video games aren't just a teaching tool. They have been part of his “reading” list for the course for several years.
This is the second year that students will be assigned to play the indie adventure game Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, made by Toronto-based Capybara Games, in addition to reading the poetry collectionPortable Altamont by Brian Joseph Davis and the first volume of Lee O Malley's comic book series Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, among other works...'
