The goal of Medieval Quest is to explore the potential for immersive learning on a global scale.  Participants are encouraged to engage at any skill level or time commitment. Learning objectives include the opportunity:
  • to interact with others on a global scale in a virtual learning environment, 
  • experience of new media for content delivery and instruction,
  • documentation of literature-based role-play through machinima.

          Through ten clues, learners explore a Medieval castle and village, which will be enhanced through encounters with live role-play characters.  Participants in the project are challenged to learn about historical roles and “stay in character” during the role-play events.  Those who prefer to simply come and explore are welcome, too.  Through scaffolding, which aligns well with Constructivist Learning Theory, a range of learning opportunities will be shared.
