Class Action





Back in January, I wrote a post about a group of students who were playing EQII as part of a college course. They played on Antonia Bayle with the help of the Vindicators, the guild run by Scott Adams.

Well now I see (via Terranova) that they have not only completed their study but have provided us with fifteen papers related to MMO's. You can read them all here. I haven't read them all yet, but the ones I have read so far are excellent. And I plan to finish the rest because the topics are wide-ranging and interesting. So check them out and see what a semester in Norrath can teach you.

The professor who taught the class, Dr. Aaron Delwiche, was interviewed on EQ2-Daily Podcast 19.

Nick Yee also did something like this with Everquest 1, he has a lot of interesting information, he did a lot of polling of EQ players that different popular EQ sites posted links too, it was fun to participate in.

You can check out his stuff at nickyee.com

BTW it was totally accidentally that they joined my guild.

At time the proff was simply looking for a guild that would allow newbies and was large enough to take on his entire class without impact!
