Vocational Training in programming Skills Using a Game-based approach

V-Game is a web-based role-playing game, which is being developed as part of the Erasmus+ V-Game project. The objective of the game is to introduce the gamers to basic web-page programming languages such as HTML5 and CSS and also JavaScript.

Throughout the game the player assumes the role of a teenager who wants to make a lot of money. In order to achieve this goal the player has to address numerous challenges related to programming and cyber-security. In addition the player will also be required to set up a secure web-based business where the character may interact with others.

To this extent the story line enables the user to learn about cyber security and also get basic knowledge about entrepreneurship. It follows that the game teaches the user about a diverse set of topics while rendering the learning experience more enjoyable.
