DePaul Instructional Game and Innovation Lab (DIGI)

The DePau​l Instructional Game & Innovation (DIGI) Lab is a new lab within the Center for Teaching and Learning that works with faculty and university partners to co-design games and simulations. After an initial consultation, a project development plan is created by DIGI & the collaborating instructional designer, reviewed by the collaborating faculty member or university partner, and then developed by the DIGI team.

What kind of projects does DIGI work on?

  • Digital games
  • Interactive D2L course content
  • Animations & illustrated Content
  • Analog games (board games and roleplaying games)
  • Extended reality (XR) content and education
  • In-class activities

If you're not sure what kind of game, simulation, or activity might fit your class, but you're curious to learn more, a DIGI designer can meet with you to brainstorm and come up with ideas. Conversely, if you already have an idea for a game or simulation, you can schedule a consultation to discuss how DIGI can work with you to create it.

This page will be updated soon to include examples of current and past projects. To see a wide array of example content, request to be added to DIGI's D2L Showcase course.
