The Athens News of Athens, Ohio, reports that the Games Research and Immersive Technology Lab program at Ohio University will begin testing some of its new educational video games on local students at a new arcade it has set up in Athens. The researchers will use the arcade as a labratory to test the “function and usability of various kinds of computer games and serious games.” Researchers also hope that students taking part in the arcade project will develop a greater interest in studying programming and digital technology.
