Are you a Composica developer looking for new ways to engage your students while assessing how much they've learned in a course? Tired of the same old multiple choice or mundane activities available for your quizzes? Then maybe it's time to kick it up a notch with the integration of Mind Games.

Composica Mind Games can enhance the learning process by creating a dynamic and interactive experience for the learner. This is done by employing powerful motivational elements such as competition, humor and the satisfaction of winning by applying a skill. Composica Mind Games are a special element that content authors can use to design experiences that learners can enjoy while reinforcing newly acquired knowledge.

Game elements can be added to any test folder document page and support all test settings. All interactions and performance data can be reported, just like any test results, to an LMS via SCORM. Here are some steps to get you started:

1. Create a test folder and populate it with activities as you normally would when creating a test section within your course.

2. In Design View, select the test folder.

3. Select the Insert menu ribbon.

4. Select the Mind Games option along the Insert ribbon.

5. Select Game Picker to open a dialog to see various Mind Games available or select a specific Mind Game from the drop-down list.

6. Once you've selected a Mind Game, modify its various features in the Properties Pane as needed.

Bottom-line--Mind Games are a great way to entertain your students while subtly testing the skills they've learned in your Composica courses!

That's it for this blog.


Until next time...
Happy Viewleting!
