Written by   - Thursday, 26 August 2010  (0 Comments )

The United States University of Florida is teaching real world skills in the EME2040: 21st Century Skills in Starcraft discipline, a three credit course that focuses on the strategy game as a way to learn a thing or two that you can later use in your professional life. In just a few days, 25 students will heat up their gaming gear and begin the first remotely-taught course in the history of this University.

According to Nate Poling, Ph.D. candidate at the United States University of Florida and the instructor behind this course, "My problem solving skills in StarCraft are the same problem solving skills learned in school or the real world", he says.
