If you are considering offering SQA's new National Progression Awards in Computer Games Development (available at SCQF levels 4, 5 and 6) you may be interested in attending the Game to Learn: Take 2! conference at Dundee College on 18 March. The NPA covers the design, creation of graphics, sounds and animation and development of computer games.
Colin Maxwell from Carnegie College will lead a workshop on how to create a 3D game using Blender, the free 3D modelling and animation tool. The session will look at using Blender in the context of teaching Units in the NPA Computer Games Development qualification. Delegates will be lead through the creation of a 3D game, from the initial design to a working prototype. More information on the conference is available here http://www.gametolearn.org/
Assessment Support Packs for the Units will be available on our website shortly and web-based teaching and learning material is being developed for August 2011.
