EGGS aims at the development of a game-based online learning environment for English, articulated in independent and reusable units. Each online unit corresponds to the didactic modules of a classroom-based intermediate level English course, and targets students studying for Bachelor degrees in the various cycles of Universities of Applied Sciences and universities. The main goal of the course is to allow students who already possess basic linguistic skills to reach level B2 of the European Languages Portfolio. The specific features of the project are the use of a didactic strategy based on narrative and role-playing and the attention to gender-related issues, which make EGGS online units an original and valuable support. EGGS will in fact develop 6 units, in which students will perform specific tasks within a story-based game (e.g., a thriller), and which require the development of specific language skills (grammar, vocabulary, etc.) in order to enhance situated and task-oriented learning. The units will be framed within a blended learning structure, 75% of which will be distance work monitored by a tutor and 25% reserved to the time spent in class.
