offline activities use the same model, but are designed for hands-on offline learning.
The highlight of the Cyberchase online activities are the "quest" activities in which students have to solve problems as along a journey as they work toward a goal. For example, in Mission Motherboard students have to solve problems to earn money that they then use to buy parts to fix a motherboard. Not all of the games are as time intensive as Mission Motherboard. A quick activity is the Virtual Coin Flip. The Virtual Coin Flip teaches students a short lesson in probability. There is a supplementary explanatory video to go along with each game in the Cyberchase online activities.
Applications for Education
The large selection of online activities available on Cyberchase makes it a good resource to use in a classroom where you have groups of students working on different skills at the same time. I really like the quest activities because they provide a nice game environment in which students are working toward a goal through the use of their problem solving skills.
