Once you have made an interactive learning game using the What2Learn game generator there are many different ways you can use it. One way which is growing in popularity is to embed the game into your Moodle Virtual Learning Environment. This is a great way of providing some fun and effective learning opportunities to your online materials.
Step One: Make a game using the What2Learn game generator. This is quick and easy to do – simply select the game engine you want to use and fill in a form stating the questions and answers you want.
Step Two: When you play your completed game you should see some ‘embed code’ at the very bottom of the page your game is on. You need to highlight and copy the embed code.
Step Three: Paste the embed code for your game into the source code of your blog or website. Your W2L game will now be available for visitors to your site to play without coming through W2L.
Please note that this does provide a great means of enhancing the interactivity levels within your own website, but it is only by adding your games to the main W2L website that you will be able to see the scores people have attained in your games. To learn more about this click here.
