The Information Literacy Game

Logo for The Information Literacy Game
The Information Literacy Game was created to reinforce information literacy concepts.

This game is a great way to engage students in basic information literacy skills. There were a few technical glitches where the question was 0 and all the answers were 0 and I couldn't move back or foward in the game. As a librarian I think this would be a great way to assess student learning in my courses. I am however, unsure how or if the results can be extracted and used for assessment.

The graphics are appealing, at least the ones I was able to see. There is definitely a loading problem, as no questions were ever displayed. The onlin hyperlink I could find to click on brough a File Server - 404 error. Disappointing, since the game looks like it would be fun!

Technical Remarks:

The game never finished loading for me.

This game is great!  It has great potential for teaching basic information literacy skills to undergraduate students.  It could be used for pre- or post-testing of skills.

Technical Remarks:

Not all of the questions would load.  Some came up as blank questions that are not answerable.

This game would be an excellent icebreaker for classes discussing information literacy. The questions would not only be informative, but also useful in stimulating discussion as to the definition and importance of information literacy.
