Video games are an emerging modali ty for higher education learning. We developed a social media based role-playing game as an adjunct to our Introduction to Health Care Information Technology Management course. Our goal was to p ˙oduce a video game learning modality that complements the classroom experience and increases student engagement with course concepts outside of the conventional class time. The design of the game includes educational and entertaining mechanics. During the pilot, 29 second-year students in our Master of Health Administration program were given the opportunity to play the game over the course of the semester. Game play intensity varied among students, including ill. any who invested considerable time outside of class to the game. The game was rated by the players across a number of dimensions which were used to create composite scores. We found an association between intensity of game play, performance, and game ratings. Electronic media such as video games and simulations have great potential in health administration learning environments.
