Safe in the Game – Webinars for Students
Part of creating or even playing a game online involves interacting with other people. It could be to share a line of code, a strategy or just to get feedback; whatever the purpose, collaboration and communication is an important part of these spaces.
The programs in the Games and Apps challenge are no different. There are forums associated with each product and opportunities to share and get feedback in each of the sites. Some key elements to consider for students are:
- Who am I talking to?
- How much personal information should I share?
- How do I give constructive feedback?
- How can I create a positive online presence?
