Aalto Drawing



A scalable introductory drawing and visual communication course for all Aalto students, implemented as a digital game that automatically assesses the drawings of students and provides clear quantitative and visual feedback. 

Aalto Drawing is a gameful platform for learning to draw, developed in the Gamifying Learning in Visual Communication research project for Aalto Online Learning. It is currently being used internally for teaching a MOOC in drawing at Aalto University. Supervising professors: Perttu Hämäläinen and Martti Raevaara
Advisors: Heikka Valja and Maximus Kaos
Student team: Christina Lassheikki, Iina Nokelainen, Yuanqi Shan

I worked as a research assistant for this project that is ongoing and started 2017. Production responsibilities included project management, gamification design, graphics, UI design, as well as gamification research.
