Have you ever wondered how playing games can help us to train people, deal with societal challenges or raise awareness of contemporary social issues? In this MOOC you will learn the ins and outs of games that are designed with exactly those purposes in mind: serious games. We will define serious games and discuss the different types that have been developed. We will explain why people like to play them and what impact they may have. State of the art theories from game studies, philosophy and media psychology will be used to help you understand how serious games work and how they appeal to players. The potential impact of gaming is addressed in detail by discussing persuasive games, which aim at changing the player's attitude. Throughout the MOOC, theoretical insights will be illustrated with playful animations and case studies of serious games that are developed by world-class companies in the city of Rotterdam. This MOOC is particularly interesting for you when you are a student considering to study digital media such as serious games, a professional interested in the opportunities these games may create for your organization, or a game developer who wants to know more about the impact serious games can have. Note that this MOOC will not teach you how to design a serious game. Watch the teaser for this MOOC here: Are you ready to broaden your vision on serious games? Join this course and be inspired!...

Excellent course. Students have the opportunity to learn about the main features of serious games (definition, how they work, kinds of serious games and other topics). Videos are engaging because learners are encouraged to participate not only by answering questions about content, but also to answer short surveys or to play a game. Also, students are invited to try a lot of games in order to get familiar with serious games. The suggested readings are very interesting (I read most of them). Teachers are nice and enthusiastic. Finally, I liked the course because I had enough time to review concepts and also to play the games. I mean, I learned a lot without feeling overwhelmed.

Very interesting well structured and highly informative course. this course is related to game design, psychology, gamification, engagement, and motivation theories.

Very well constructed course, there was a perfect balance of theory and practice. It showcased what serious game theory is grounded on by showing serious games and depicting them. Very useful if you are interested in learning about serious games, the theory behind it all, and the practical moral and ethical questions underlying them. The videos were informative and the professors were all very knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. Highly recommend!!!

This is a great course given by well informed instructors and the best part is that were taught through case studies. This really helped me a lot to understand the concepts that were taught in the well organized modules. Thanks a lot to the instructors and Erasmus University Rotterdam for sharing their knowledge.

Great speakers, great case studies. The rythme of the course is perfect too (duration of the videos, questions, polls, assignments, quizz).. I have nothing to say except maybe it could be interestng to have the feedback of the teachers themselve on our work.

What did i learn about Serious Gaming ?

From zero (before) to 8 (since only because all this is new to me)

Learning about this new topic (to me) was a complete challenge in the beginning. I left it for a while (maybe 2 - 3 weeks) then when i returned i skimmed through the from the start to where i stopped then continued. Things we getting much better with me.

One concern however, the professors were speaking some difficult vocabulary (not the simpler english style) - upon which i had to look in the dictionary quite a few times. - but i guess this was because they were selecting very specific meanings to specific exact words they wanted to use.

Thank you very much for this great experience :)

A​ comprehensive yet very accessible course that covers all the fundamentals of serious games for non-experts. The course is extremely well built, seeking to apply some of the same principles of serious games into the course design itself. A very interactive learning experience, engaging, very rich in additional information and future venues to pursue, and fantastic presenters/speakers. An incredibly valuable course that enriched my career path and opened future professional prospects.

Excellent approach to a MOOC!! The case studies (though some of them have meanwhile become unavailable) helped a lot, videos were interactive and assignments made you think (so were not a tick the box endeavour). The academics/presentedrs of the course worked well as a team and were very human, not oveerly academic or formal. A good example for a MOOC, congratulations to the team behind this project, would be looking forward to a part II forcusing on serious game design.

Very interesting course with lot of source material and practical examples. The teachers are clear in their exposition. I only missed some hints on how to realize a serious game: programs? programmation skills? do I have to study these topics in an university to get hired for the realization of a serious game? Otherwise really good course!

創建者 Rohan M T


Good insight into serious games. Learnt a lot of examples for serious games and the importance of the whole concept. Also how it can be combined with gamification (towards the end).

Met a lot of people with some really great ideas for serious games.

Good lectures and interesting reading articles. Enjoyed the course.

Thank you =)

It's a cool course for beginners to be familiar with serious games and their applications. The course emphasizes psychological, marketing, and educational perspectives of serious games' analysis; however, I found the information provided applies to the study of political games too. Many thanks!



El curso de Serious Gaming es uno de los mejores MOOC que he hecho. Con videos muy interesantes y entretenidos de ver, complementan de buena manera las explicaciones con distintos especialistas o caricaturas. Los ejemplos que muestran son útiles y fáciles para poner en práctica.

This couse about serious games explains very well the principles to make them attaractive and efficient. Furthermore, it gives good information about how to measure their impact and what could be their evolution in the future.

Curso completo para conocer sobre las características del juego para usos educativos. Aunque su finalidad no es que tú desarrolles completamente un juego, brinda los espacios de práctica y ejemplos claros para aprender.

創建者 Giovanna U


The course is very interesting for those who want to learn more about serious gaming. It could improve in terms of case studies featuring more games that can be played online and not just video samples of them.
