This game, written with the open-source tool Twine, is aimed at curriculum developers, presenting them with various decisions they make in the course of converting their classes to open or zero cost educational resources. It also strives to address some of the common questions and confusion surrounding the legal use of digital resources, be they textual or audiovisual. Digital pedagogy—including game making—is one of the areas of focus of Baruch’s CTL, and the Twine game represents a less traditional and more interactive introduction to the domain of OER/ZTC.
You can play The Old Régime and the OER Revolution below. The process of creating a game is iterative, and this is our first public-facing version (v.1). Please feel free to play through and send us your comments or tell us about any issues you encounter by emailing the CTL staff.
