Evolve authoring multiplayer elearning games

Create a game course

Create an elearning game with Evolve authoring:

Creating an elearning game is an essential tool in any instructional designer’s toolkit. In this article, we’ll show you how to get going using Evolve’s new Game component.

You can see a preview of the course here.

Different game types

Using the game component to create ranking or multiplayer games is simple. A ranking game is one that has the learner play to achieve ranks.

What these ranks are is entirely up to you. In the example, we’re using Bronze, Silver and Gold but you can call the ranks whatever you like and configure the points needed to earn each.

Multiplayer games allow your learner to play against the AI built into the component. Set the intelligence of each AI character on a per character basis and choose from one of three difficulty settings; Easy, Normal and Hard.

Check out the free elearning course below and use it on a free Evolve Trial.
