2: A new Learning on Demand (LoD) report, "The Business of Digital Game-Based Learning" 
    - Rapporten kan lastes ned fra våre medlemssider

The Business of Digital Game-Based LearningRole-playing games and other types of learning games have long had a role in traditional training.  But just as technology is increasingly finding use in most forms of learning and training, game-based learning is changing as existing and emerging technologies play a greater role. As a result, organizations' interest in digital game-based learning (DGBL) is growing.  This interest derives partly from the dramatic growth and use of video games, not just by children but also by millions of adults; most people younger than age 34 today have played video games.  Video games and their current and potential use and impact are also gaining attention in a range of constituencies. Rapid technological progress enables increasingly interactive and immersive gaming experiences and raises visions of interesting ways to use some of these tools and technologies for learning and training.

Considerable literature already focuses on the design of game-based learning, so this report focuses on the business of DGBL. As more organizations consider using DGBL, they will need to address a variety of business issues, particularly as they prepare their business plans and make a case for the use of DGBL.
