Courseware is a term that combines words, “course” and “software”. It is part of overall software containing instructional strategies, educational content, and instructions. This courseware can consist of additional educational material intended as kits for trainers, teachers, or as tutorials for students, both in the classroom and outside.

Children tend to obtain a much better sense of oneself in two ways; firstly, via self-confidence- when they achieve success or goals in some way – and through self-growth – when they have more self-realization and gain emotional intelligence. There are not many exercises that can cover both of these aspects simultaneously, though the most popular and effective would be to teach them game design.

With these important factors in mind, Edbox team is introducing game-design courseware. Ours is an increasingly technological society and era; and in fact, there have been numerous articles mentioning how coding is almost a necessity, not only for the internet industry but also for a small-medium sized business relying on computer code. Edbox courseware is focused on providing impactful and quality course materials to tap “computational thinking” among young minds – which is algorithmic and logical thinking, as well as problem-solving aspects of computer science – providing analytical backbone useful for every student.

Currently, Edbox courseware covers Game design concepts based on 4 popular game designs. They are Design of Simulation Game, Design of Fruit Master, Design of Memory Game and Design of Jigsaw Puzzle. All of these courses have been developed with extensive research and development by Net Dragon Websoft and Edbox team. We have considered various scenarios where students can be exposed to after studying these courses. At the same time, we have also conducted constant feedback from various STEAM teachers on how we can improve these course methodologies for our upcoming courses.
