  • Game Research
  • UROP Grant
  • UROP Grant Project Improving Knowledge
    Retention Through Gaming
  • UMC student Ryan Owens presented a poster at the
    National Conference for Undergraduate Research
    (NCUR) in Indianapolis, IN, on Friday, April 16. 
     He will present a poster, The Impact of
    Computer Mediated Learning Module on Student
    Retention, detailing the research project he
    completed with Doug Knowlton, former UMC vice
    chancellor for academic affairs.  The project
    aimed to determine whether an increase in
    retention of class material in a psychology class
    would be produced by creating a learning module
    that could be accessible via the World Wide Web. 
    The learning module is a Macromedia Flash
    software game, generated dynamically from a
    database.  There was significant difference
    between results indicating that students
    increased retention on lecture material included
    in the learning module, as compared to material
    not included in the learning module, supporting
    the assertion that computer mediated learning
    creates a positive impact on learning.  NCUR
    Participants came from over 400 colleges and
    universities representing almost every state in
    the nation.
