Finally, explore the best practices for integrating game design and Adobe tools into your curriculum.

What to Expect

The course kicks off on Monday, November 6 and ends on Friday, December 22, 2017. You may work at your own pace through the asynchronous content on the Exchange at any time during the course.

Live Class 1 takes place at the following date and time: Tuesday, November 7

We anticipate that successful completion of this course will require a minimum 25 hours of your time. After successfully completing this course, you will receive a digital credential that states that you successfully completed 25 hours of professional development.


This is an introductory level course. No prior experience is assumed but a basic knowledge of the internet and basic understanding of digital technologies will be useful. Unity is an incredible games engine and we will guide you through the key concepts to start creating a simple game but a higher level of knowledge will be required to further develop a fully functioning game.

“I learned a lot through these five weeks. Live the game design experience is very important to understand how difficult create a video game is. I am very glad I take this wonderful course. I am looking forward to participate in other game creation experiences and to teach all I have learn here.” AGP Participant 2016
