This Virtual Exchange Project engaged students with a game simulation with individual roles that reflect the US Environmental policy and political system. The game focused on siting an off-shore wind farm in the United States using a simulation created by Harvard University. The students participated in teams with students from the University of the Aegean. Further on, students were divided into three teams and the game took place synchronously over Zoom over the course of three hours. Prepared scripts and role scenarios were sent to the students one week before the game simulation and additional background information for the strategy to be pursed in the game environment was provided.
In addition, five lectures that used a camera supported by the GLE to record 3-dimensional/panoramic lectures (virtual reality like) on local area wind and solar farms was loaded into the course. Both sets of students viewed these lectures using goggles in preparation for the game.
