Online Role-play in education
By way of Jan Ole Bolsø, a link to the Nord-Trøndelag College where Knut Ekker arranged a role-playing game for his students in order to train them in argumentative techniques, language and online communication. The text is in norwegian, but it describes a cooperation between colleges and universities in different European countries. IDEELS is short for Intercultural Dynamics in European Education through onLine Simulation, and is a research project where five universities and colleges in Europe cooperate in order to find ways to use the net to increase intercultural understanding.
