Tutorial of the month
Tutorial Description: Based on the multimedia game, Scene It, Library Scene: Fairfield Edition provides an interactive game that combines animation and live action to orient students to the DiMenna-Nyselius Library. The game has four sections that highlight key library floors and services. Following each session students are presented with four challenges. The challenges are presented in a variety of formats including multiple choice questions, word puzzles, and picture matching.
Q: What was the motivation behind the development of Library Scene?
A: We created the interactive game, Library Scene: Fairfield Edition, to instruct first semester freshmen about library services and to orient them to our building. We needed to create something that would meet both our needs to engage students and to achieve our instructional goals. We chose to base the concept on the popular DVD game, Scene It, since it incorporates multimedia elements as well as traditional game play techniques.
