The University of Weimar organized a location-based game-based learning experience using PlayVisit technology to discover different venues related to Water and Environment Management.
What is this experience about?
Several teachers from the University of Weimar created a geolocation game for teaching setting up a trial in September 2018 with 30-40 students. The game was between 1 and 1 hours of play and will move students around and look at buildings related to water management.
In words of Dr. Heinrich Söbke:
We used PlayVisit.com within of our part-time distance learning course “Water and the Environment” (https://www.uni-weimar.de/en/civil-engineering/weiterbildende-studiengaenge/wbbau/)to introduce our students to the water infrastructure of the city of Weimar in a self-guided tour. Although the majority of the students are already employed and very experienced, their assessment of PlayVisit.com was almost entirely positive and to be seen as an enrichment of the course. We will gladly reinstate PlayVisit.com!”
