Serious games talk at TEDx ND

April 15, 2011

Today I gave a talk at TEDx Notre Dame titled, “Getting Serious about Games.” My goal was to convince people to explore using serious games because…

  • Learning is central to games,
  • Good games exist, and more are coming, and
  • YOU can do it (build, adopt or adapt a game)

This article serves as an online handout, starting with an informal capture of the presentation (posted on YouTube a month after the fact).


  1. The Game – participants earned points for things like using a game in a course.
  2. The Presentation – I created a Prezi in the form of a board game.
  3. The Video (above)
  4. The Links (below) – sites I referred to, plus a few extras.
