Students at the Classen School for Advanced Studies in Oklahoma City are doing their homework by playing games. The students are using an online digital game titled "McLarin's Adventures," which challenges students' science, literacy and math skills. The game was created by researchers at the University of Oklahoma's K20 Center and funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

While online gaming is not a new concept, digital game-based learning (DGBL) as an educational tool is still in the research phase. There are only a handful of research centers in the U.S., including the K20 Center, that are working on DGBL. The K20 Center is the only center that built the gaming engine as well as the game.
