The best news this year was that the Board of Erasmus University supported my proposal for a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) with a 30K grant. This open, international course is about serious gaming, including its theoretical backbone (a.o. theories of play, theories of persuasion), contemporary practices, its promises and to what extent the field has been able to fulfill these. In the late Spring of 2015, the MOOC will be offered on Coursera.
