    “The Game Institute, an online educational course in programming skills using video games, has announced a partnership with Muzzy Lane Software to produce a training series on how to use games in education. The course, appropriately titled “Using Games in Education,” will be downloadable from the Games Institute’s site for educators who wish to use it.”

    Tony, with your new C++ coding skills being on the project at Torc, it’s surprising that it hasn’t been released yet! :P

    Took 4 courses with them and didnt really find them upto snuff to be honest. The source code and the pdf’s are the only reason to take the course. I tried multiple times to arrange the whole timeblock system, and resulted in getting up several times at 4am to find the tutor wasnt even online. Wasnt very happy with it.

    Anyway never managed to get any use out of my timeblocks. Oh and Im still waiting for my CD ;)

    All in all if you get more out of source code and reading than lectures, go for it.
