Virtual Trader

Various authors, Nov 07, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As I've talked about learning environments in the past this is the sort of thing I've had in mind. Virtual Trader is a stock market simulation - it allows you to make investments and trade stocks in a simulated environment - no money risked. As you look at the home page, notice how educational resources (learning objects?) are embedded into the game as a way of helping plyers learn about the subject. Note: the game would not let me sign on because it couldn't match my postal code (which is Canadian) to a UK street address. Why such information is needed is beyond me - and when it fails to work, it really gets annoying. Via e-Learning Centre.
