NetPolis is an educational knowledge and strategy game that aims to communicate the principles of building mobile telephony networks






Why we like it

  • Fun example of a simulation game, where players “build” a network in an imaginary city.
  • Internet deployed, catch-all design aims to educate new employees on the basic principles of mobile telephony, while at the same time promoting an understanding of mobile telephony to high school students.
  • Example of how a gaming approach can deliver fun at the same time as the required technical knowledge.
  • Provides an environment in which players can explore and make mistakes, get feedback and guidance and then try again. Good learning-by-doing model.
  • Good example of collaborative design – using the expertise of telecommunications engineers and game designers, and overseen by an instructional design team to ensure really effective learning.
