Using video games in Humanities

Morrowind used in middle school classroom. Teacher had students write a choose your own adventure story about the characters in it. Started with Setting, then finished with the story. She used Choose your own adventure, because it is much like Roleplay.

Anarchy Online used in a Technical writing classroom to teach the "fuzzy" stuff. Students roleplay within the game. Game is the situated context for learning.
