Student feedback

“For one who does

not play video games,

this was an exciting

experience to use new

and evolving

Technology…”

“It was evident that some students were not comfortable with their positions and were unclear what needed to be done. This can also happen in a real event and provided a good learning experience for all students.”

“Moving around in that

environment gives you

a kind of real life feeling…”
