The ‘Lost City’: Development of a National-Level On-Line Mystery Game Using Freeware and Low Budget Technology
Save to My Collections
A mystery game, the Lost City, was trialed as a component of a national on-line problem-solving competition. The game was created largely from free web resources, using low-bandwidth clues released on a schedule to maximize their use in participants’ preparing video and stage documentaries of their virtual explorations. Findings showed positive results comparable to previous online mysteries but at a cost in time and resources low enough to be attainable by individual teachers without additional funding or help.
