Abstract

The way we engage and communicate with students has rapidly changed over the past decade due to technological advancements. This is most noticeable in web-based subjects with the advent of smart-phones, web-based apps, web-streaming and of course social media. Students who learn and develop for web-based environments must be able to adapt and retrain constantly, not to mention, have both a technical and creative mindsets. This article presents the insights for integrating interactive digital solutions and game-based development into a web-programming curriculum (to enhance students’ abilities and the learning experience). The approach both supports and encourages students on multiple levels, while nurturing experimental design and stretch goals.
