Serious games are digital games whose primary objective is not entertainment; they are designed for objectives related to training, education, health, public policy, and strategic communication. Despite their increasing popularity, the design, engineering, and production of serious games still lead to many questions and uncertainties, for instance about their effectiveness.

The intended learning outcomes for a student that successfully attends the seminar are the following:
