The Old Régime and the OER Revolution Game

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.
