Senior Learning Producer

 

About Endless Studios: 

These clients have formed a partnership to create a new venture that harnesses the power of games and digital creation experiences to create a Metaverse of Learning -- where youth play to learn and learn to make, as they build skills to thrive in a rapidly changing, globally connected world. 

 

Bringing together the leadership teams and innovative platforms that the two organizations have collaborated to create, they build upon the current game-based learning platforms of the two companies including a community-driven creation sandbox game where you can play, hack, and create within a rich narrative world and share those games with the world.  The Company also leverages a game-based learning platform where players learn the fundamentals of coding and computational thinking through a diverse collection of games where hacking is a key mechanic.

 

The Company’s first service operates as a highly-distributed, youth-centered game making studio where teens and young adults apprentice with game industry pros and other aspiring game makers to create games using Unity, and other creation tools.
