"NeverWinter Nights" project receives $16,000 Grant

Nora Paul and Kathleen Hansen awarded grant from the CLA InfoTech Fees Committee

Professor Kathleen Hansen and INMS director Nora Paul were awarded a $16,000 grant from the CLA InfoTech Fees Committee to develop an interactive simulation using an off-the-shelf game system called "NeverWinter Nights." The simulation is being developed for use in Jour 3004W as a way to teach students the information strategy process through a realistic scenario in which the students play the role of a reporter covering a community emergency. Hansen and Paul are working with a colleague at the Dunwoody College of Technology on the project.
