College Quest scores an Epic Win at BMCC

Two CUNY professors, Joe Bisz and Francesco Crocco, recently received a Title V grant to create College Quest, a game-enhanced academic social network, getting things done, and course management application for BMCC. Students will: create an avatar; earn points, levels, and badges for completing course assignments; receive push notifications for deadlines; play skill-building learning games in an online arcade; collaborate and mentor each other; check in to locations for augmented-reality gaming; and much more. The profs are working with Neuronic Games, a NYC game studio specializing in learning games, to produce a beta of College Quest by summer 2012. College Quest was inspired by the popular iOS-based getting things done app, Epic Win, which uses a fantasy theme and avatar system to manage tasks and level-up players.
