Students can now earn their grades while playing DoTA 2 as the University of the Visayas New School (UVNS) has unveiled its new eSpots Gaming course for Senior High School students.
Under the Game Design course of the Arts and Design Track for Senior High School, students can now opt to choose between honing their in-game skills in the country’s first e-Sports course or improve their creativity through game development. Core subjects for the e-sports course include theory, mechanics, strategy and game awareness. Students will also be learning game design, branding, shoutcasting, as well as entrepreneurship.
“We’ll have game strategy for Dota 2 and we will have game design and development animation and 2D and 3D animation, and of course, game creation. After two years, the students can either choose to be game creators, designers, or e-sports players in the professional league,” said Genesis Raña, founder and school director of UVNS, to SunStar.
The game design senior high track of UVNS is open for all incoming senior high students and will be available this coming school year.
