Class Experience

Students will extend their love of gaming into also practicing social skills, discussion, teamwork, and vicariously learning real-life takeaways through shared experiences in the Core Keeper video game.
A long-time gamer, I have about 90 hours of experience in this game, although it's only been available via early access since March, 2022. I look forward to learning and advising as much as I can while guiding learners through co-op play as the game continues to be developed and change.
None. But solo play outside of class time will help bring a larger knowledge base to the group.
Learners need to have their own copy of Core Keeper, the video game.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Core Keeper is an indie adventure pixel RPG still in early access along the lines of Terraria or Stardew Valley. Players adventure in a cavern to find materials, garden, explore, craft, and fight monsters. Co-op play will be facilitated by the teacher hosting and sharing the access code weekly. As always, please talk to your learner about cyber security and what should or should not be shared during class.

Co-op play is based on teamwork. Griefers (players who intentionally work against the common good, harm other players or their work) will be verbally warned, and then may be removed from the session or the class if the behavior persists.
Learners need to have their own copy of Core Keeper, the video game.
