Students and alumni in the collaborative can enroll in the elective course to learn gaming skills to create games that aid the learning of health entrepreneurship. The purpose of this course is to provide students with guided practice in creating simple games that teach/reinforce information skills. The games produced will be used to teach in the Ashesi Health Initiative.
