This paper reports on the first stage of a project to develop and test the use of massively-multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) for promoting computer-supported collaborative learning through instructional gaming in the high school classroom. Teachers and students of English and Science at Swan View Senior High School, Western Australia were involved in a pilot study as “proof of concept,” in which they participated in both game design and game play within a MOO-based collaborative virtual environment with a Medieval Castle theme.
