Starcraft Skills are Creditworthy for University of Florida Students

Starcraft skills can earn you honors college credit…if you are a University of Florida Gator.   Imagine being able to play your favorite video game, and use that to help you get to your degree.

An eight week 2 credit hour course called 21st century Skills in StarCraft will be offered at the Gainesville campus.  I can’t say that I am all too shocked, considering that there are much easier classes likely offered.

The course’s instructor says:

“With society becoming increasingly technology-based and fast-paced, it is important for professionals to be highly proficient in skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, resource management, and adaptive decision making. These skills are fundamental in Starcraft and therefore make the game a highly effective environment for students to analyze and take action in complex situations.”

Hmm.  Sounds interesting to say the very least.  If you were at Florida, would you enroll in the course?

      @Healingproof Tycker fortfarande att det ke4nns osalkonint att Blizzard skulle kalla sin tidsre4kning ff6r sekunder men bere4kna den pe5 ett annat se4tt e4n standardenheten ff6r tid. Fakta e4r dock att en nuke tar 15 sekunder SI basenhet (dvs bere4knat med ett atom-ur) och Blizzard pe5ste5r att den tar 20 sekunder. Om du inte fattat att detta e4r problemet och att det betyder att ingen hade re4tt eller fel e4r du dummare e4n jag trodde. Jag spelar ingenting. Jag le4gger fram fakta. Bemf6t dom. Log in to Reply
