Victoria College student Alex Innes tries his skills at a computer game while taking a break. Victoria College is now offering an online, instructor-led class “How to Get Started in Game Development” as part of its partnership with ed2go.

Victoria College has  partnered with ed2go to launch “How to Get Started in Game Development,” an online, instructor-led course.

Participants in this course will learn how to build the foundation to design and develop games for modern consoles, desktop computers, and mobile computing devices. They'll delve into the game development cycle and key techniques and procedures and get an overview of game genres, platforms and audiences.

“Right now is the perfect time to get started in a career in the game development industry,” said Radonna Brown, VC’s Workforce & Continuing Education program coordinator. “You can find games online, on computers, gaming consoles and almost every smart phone and tablet out there. It is forecasted that the gaming industry will be worth close to $100 billion in the next two years, and creative, talented and passionate people are going to be in high demand.”

This course is part of Victoria College’s growing schedule of more than 300 instructor-facilitated non-credit online courses. Through well-crafted lessons, expert online instruction and interaction with fellow students, participants in these courses gain valuable knowledge at their convenience. They have the flexibility to study at their own pace combined with enough structure and support to complete the course. And they can access the classroom 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection.

New sessions of each course run every month. The sessions last six weeks, with two new lessons being released weekly, for a total of 12 lessons. The courses are entirely Web-based with comprehensive lessons, quizzes and assignments. A dedicated professional instructor facilitates every course; pacing learners, answering questions, giving feedback and facilitating discussions.
