Web Game Design takes FLASH® to the next level. ActionScript is one of the most widely used programming languages for web-based gaming today – and we’ve got you covered. You don’t need to be an expert in 2D programming. This uniquely designed career-themed course gives your students the chance to further develop their FLASH skills by learning the basis of 2D programming. When they’re done – every student in your class will have made a web game that can be posted on any site for friends, family, and students to play.
Let’s take a closer look.
Web Game Design is a self-contained curriculum that takes your students from the basics of FLASH programming to creating their own 2D game. Through a certification process, your students will be learning:
- ActionScript Basics
- Targets and Levels
- Concatenating Strings
- FOR Loops
- Functions and Structure
- Mouse Listeners
- Loading Sounds Dynamically
- And many more topics…
Gaming on the Web
It’s the latest in rage for gamers – online web games. From corporations to individuals – web games are becoming the new “solitaire” for this generation. So, use it to your advantage. Grab their attention by showing your students how math, language, and science are used to make 2D web games. Watch their FLASH skills soar as they are challenged to create an online game.
Web Game Design is an interactive curriculum that is so much more than just learning the ins-and-outs of Adobe Flash. Students get the chance to bring it all together – programming, art, design, and marketing to lead the charge on the latest marketing phenomenon – web video games.
Some Experience Necessary
Web Game Design is easy to use – no programming background required – really. But we recommend that before delving into the world of ActionScript programming that you have a basic comfort level with FLASH. And just as luck would have it, we offer a great starter curriculum in Cartoon Animation.
Furthermore in Web Game Design we’ll teach you what you need to know to facilitate the course and your students all about the ActionScript programming side of FLASH through our self-paced self-directed tutorials.
Our curriculum takes you from zero-to-programming in no time. Literally, within a planning period you can be ready to implement this curriculum into your class. If a question should arise, you can always call us for help – we are just an phone call or email away.
