From Sydney University, Professor Liam Semler’s wonderfully expansive project in Shakespeare education, which has been developing for years in association with Barker College, has just launched a new game-based collection of learning material.

It’s really worth spending some time on their Shakespeare Reloaded website, and reading up on the Shakeserendipity project. Both inspirational and practical, the project is a genuinely fresh take on ways to use Shakespeare in learning, and use the latest learning systems when working on Shakespeare.

There are three games, based around Julius Caesar, Richard III and The Tempest.
