While there are tons of websites and mobile apps that offer pre-made educational games to use with your students in class, it happens sometimes that you can’t find the right game that addresses the specific learning needs of your students. In cases such as these, you will need to design your own games and yes you can do that without the need for  prior game design knowledge. There are several tools that make it super easy for you to easily create a wide variety of educational games using a drag and drop editor. You can design the game you want in such a way that you address all the learning objectives in your course. Alternatively, you can engage students in the design process and have them collaboratively work on creating their own games.
