The Old Régime and the OER Revolution Game

This game is aimed at curriculum developers, presenting them with various decisions they might face while converting their classes to open or zero-cost educational resources.

In the game, created with the open-source tool Twine, we strive to address some of the common questions and confusion surrounding the legal use of textual and audiovisual digital resources. Digital pedagogy—including game making—is one of the areas of focus of Baruch’s CTL. This game represents a less traditional and more interactive introduction to the realm of OER/ZTC. You can play The Old Régime and the OER Revolution below.

The process of creating games is iterative. This is our first public-facing version (v.1) of The Old Régime and the OER Revolution. Please feel free to play through and send us your comments or tell us about any issues you encounter by emailing the CTL staff.
