Class Experience

I have taught International Relations, including the lead up to World War 2, at St. Thomas University.
Learners are advised to read the rulebooks thoroughly.
Rulebook for Days of Decision III and World in Flames 5th Edition. Both will be provided as PDFs by the instructor.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners will need a Steam-account to log into the game, as the class will be using the Tabletop Simulator, available on Steam for about $10 US. Learners should log in using a desktop or laptop, with a mouse, to navigate the 3D boargame.
