Pick 3 Learning Opportunities

There is always more to learn about Construct 2 and a lot of resources that can help you do that. In this activity, you are going to pick three things that you want to learn more about and do it.

Turn In: Word processing document listing the three things you are going to learn and three CAPX files.

There are a lot of written and video tutorials on a wide variety of topics in Construct 2. In this activity, you are going to choose three topics that you want to learn more about.

Start a new word processing document and list the three topics that you are going to learn and a sentence for each topic describing what you want to learn. Each topic should be different from the other two. Number your topics 1 to 3 and put the description sentence for each topic with that topic.

Next, search the Internet, the Scirra web site, or other sources to find a tutorial or video on the topic you are interested in learning more about. The sources should be publically accessible and not require any login or subscription to view. Once you have found a resource for a topic, copy the web address and paste it into your word processing document right after the sentence on why you want to learn about that topic. After the web link, put in the name of the Construct 2 project file that you are going to use to follow and try out what you are learning.

For example, if my topic is web sockets then my word processing document would have an entry such as ...

1. Multiplayer Games via the Multiplayer add-in
- I am interested in learning how Construct 2 can be used to create a multiplayer game.
- https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/906/multiplayer-tutorial-2-chat-room/page-1
- MultiPlayer-ChatRoom-Test1.capx

Please be sure your topics have some level of complexity and are things you have not learned about yet in this course.

If you want to continue to learn more about and do more game development, an activity like this is an excellent way to keep learning new things and find ways to make your games better and better.
