About the Project

The Games in History Education Project aims to create games that can be used a vareity of courses and context with the goal of providing new ways for students to learn historical events and concepts while increasing student engagement.  The Project will create both new games and transfer existing boardgames into computer based games for ease of access and play.  Each game will be accompanied by materials that could be used by an instructor to extend and support student learning when playing the game.  GHEP will be aimed at high school and undergraduate students although it could also  be useful for junior high school and homeschool students.

Why web-based and not an app or computer program?  While there are various limits imposed by using essentially a Javascript/HTML-based approach means that the program is almost universally accessible and will run on virtually any computer, table, or phone.  It also means that there is no installation process, and students and other users can have access from nearly anywhere in the world nor is any updating necessary.  Saved games can be saved locally and easily loaded to continue a game.

Disclaimers: Feather River College and its employees are not responsible for the content of copyrighted games which may cover difficult or distressing topics such as war or violent conflict.  Copyright-holders retain all rights under the law.  Any games provided by the GHEP are free to use and no charges of any fees or costs of any kind are permitted to be charged for their use.
