Designing Your Own Online Learning World
Brendon Trombley

Online Minecraft communities are as diverse as they are numerous, ranging from “vanilla” style all the way to competitive “Hunger Games” arenas. Each community exists on a specialized server utilizing a combination of world design and third-party add-ons to create unique experiences. It’s an emerging kind of game design requiring little technical skill, only a bit of creativity. This workshop takes participants through the beginning phases of designing a new Minecraft server around a learning outcome. They will visualize the design of their worlds, planning out the use of space and points of interest. They will also research and choose add-ons to introduce mechanics and rules that promote specific player experiences. In the end, participants will leave with designs for new Minecraft communities plus resources and next steps for implementation. This workshop is best suited for participants with some level of previous familiarity with Minecraft.
