A new online course is being offered at Coursera.org by Jay Clayton – professor of English at Vanderbilt University – entitled ‘Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative.’ This 6-week long course – from April 27 to June 6 – will focus on the work of J. R. R. Tolkien and the way that his literature has been adapted to movies and more specifically the online game ‘The Lord of the Rings Online.’ More information about the course itself, frequently asked questions, and how to sign up is offered here.
Please take a look if you are interested!

Hi.. I am an english teacher and Like to use games in my classes. I would Like to develop games for english teaching and learn how to measure. Thank You.
Hi, Aliv. I suggest that you check out the game Trace Effects at http://americanenglish.state.gov/trace-effects. It targets ESL/EFL learners. Overall, it’s a great game for intermediate/advanced learners.
