Hi all,

there is a nice, free 6-week course of the University of Wisconsin at Coursera which deals with "Video Games and Learning". They are now in the second week and I suppose you can register (free) and take the video lectures (about 40-60 minute lecture in total each week) which are in fact quite interesting!

https://class.coursera.org/videogameslearning-001/class/index

Course syllabus:
Week One Introduction: Games and Learning?! (Available Today)
Week Two Game Design for Learning? (Begins October 15th)
Week Three Game Culture & Learning (Begins October 22nd)
Week Four Games & Cognition (Begins October 29th)
Week Five Games & Content Subject Matter (Begins November 5th)
Week Six Games & The Institution of Education (Begins November 12th)

For example, in week two, one of the topics is about the three different phases in game creation:
1. Concept phase
2. Design phase
3. Prototyping phase

The transformational game development process

Kind regards,
