Learning Through Gaming
There are moments that, some six years later, still stand out to Elvin Moy. Moy (ME, EMGT, M.Eng. MAE ’18) can recall the first group gaming event, one where students gathered to play video games online together, that he and his Illinois Institute of Technology gaming organization held on campus. Specifically, he recalls how they forgot to tape the master ethernet cable down and that it was pulled out when someone tripped on it, putting a pause to the 50-plus players participating in the event for a full hour. Then there was the time he decided to host a gaming event and only two people showed up—but he had ordered the pizza, a great deal of it, without asking for anyone to RSVP.
