Epik offers several ways to stimulate collaboration among players and also some competition. Collaboration is the main focus of Epik games, mostly because it allows players to improve their communication, coordination and cooperation skills. These are all important factors in life, whether they are used for personal or professional matters.
An example of a collaborative game that can be developed with Epik is a collaborative quiz as the one described here.
USE ASMOODLE ACTIVITIES
The games created with Epik can be provided as Moodle activities, so they can be played under a Moodle course context. This way when players finish the game, a grade can be sent to Moodle and Epik will log information about players performance that can de used for assessment.
Besides that, Moodle contents such as resource files and questions can also be imported and used for games development.
