The Learn10 Gaming Challenge - games are good for you.

November 18th, 2008

So… you like playing flash games… but what are they good for? periods of incarceration, public transport, idle afternoons in the office?

Learn10 is about to banish any vague feeling of unease you may experience after a lunchtime gaming session. We have a cunning plan to make online gaming a little more wholesome.

Learn10 is looking for flash game developers to sweeten the medicine of vocabulary learning. Developers can reach into our API to pick out pieces of a puzzle for individual gamers. Mostly these are going to be 10 daily word pairs in a language being studied, but it could be just about any call and response combination the Learnit member has input into our system.

We’re talking with Geewa.com and are awaiting a response from the Kongregate.com team (hello jim!). I’m also now going to speak to The Casual Collective and the Pirate guy.

The Learn10 API has so far been used to develop a screensaver and simple test functions, but we reckon that the creative might of game developers out there will come up with some fantastic results. Some possible examples:

  • A Tetris (falling words) style game where the learner must input the correct answer
  • A Space Invaders style game where the longer the word, the more points accessed.
  • A memory style game.
  • Integration into existing multi-player online games in the form of clues or articles for collection.
  • Integration of a speech recognition API - input via correct pronunciation.

All games created using the Learn10 API will be listed in a Learn10 games resource directory - with a rating system (of course) and affiliate opportunities for participating hosts.

So the medicine will be integrated, and the reward: gaming time is good for you.
