Starcraft skills can earn you honors college creditâ€¦if you are a University of Florida Gator. Â Â 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.Â I canâ€™t say that I am all too shocked, considering that there are much easier classes likely offered.
The courseâ€™s instructor says:
â€œWith 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.â€
Hmm.Â Sounds interesting to say the very least.Â If you were at Florida, would you enroll in the course?
