How to create a game on the COLLAGE

In the COLLAGE platform we welcome users who would like to apply their imagination and creativity in creating games, whether they are teachers or students. In the context of authoring a game for a specific site or location we know that we need two particular ingredients:
- A good narrative that will engage the student in the game
- And an appropriate challenge for the learner
It is probably more convenient to work on the COLLAGE author area from a PC where editing text may be easier and uploading photos may be faster.

On entering the 'Create a game' area the platform prompts the author to enter their Id and Password which is provided, as with the 'play a game' authorisation, by the COLLAGE team.

 


The diagram above illustrates the necessary elements in creating a game on the COLLAGE platform.


Adding a Site on the Platform
In order to define the location in the COLLAGE platform simply
- add a name for the Site (e.g. Knossos)
- a brief description which may include your narrative as on your left page
- and an image which may illustrate an element of your narrative.
You may also indicate under which school the game was authored and with the help of which teacher.

 

If you would like to edit the text and image on this page you can follow the link Return to the Author's main area.

 

From here, you can follow the edit a game link...to edit any of the game elements

Adding a Game Path to an Existing Site

From the create a game page choose to add a game path, then fill in the spaces as in the example.

 

On a separate browser you can preview how this would look like when players are selecting the Central Court Path.

 

Adding a Question to an Existing Game Path

You can start adding questions to the game path.

 

From the create a game page choose to add a question, then choose the appropriate path
and fill in the spaces as in the example.

 On a separate browser you can preview how this would look like when players are about to answer this question.
