报读游戏开发课程、设计电玩的女孩子,总是教室里万绿丛中一点红。图为黄曼仪(左起)和梁雪芬正坐在屏幕前设计电脑游戏。

(沙亚南讯)一提起电玩、电动或动漫,你脑海里闪过的必定是男孩子的形象,这种根深蒂固的社会观念,说起来相当的莫名其妙。当一个男孩说他正在打电动或玩电脑游戏,人们一般都认为这绝对正常并且也符合他的性别角色。

这一种刻板印象,现在已全然颠覆。或者说,早在伯乐大学学院(KDU University College)的电脑科学与创意媒体学院(School of Computing and Creative Media,简称SCCM)推出游戏开发(荣誉)学士学位课程之初,就已打破社会的保守观念。是的,马来西亚的游戏开发工业正蓬勃发展且日益进步,投入这行发展不但可安身立命,而且还能赚取丰厚的利润。当然,这一行没有所谓的性别主导,反而是男女性皆宜。

不过,综观报读这门科系的学生,确实是以才华横溢、热爱这学科的年轻男性占大多数。相对之下,少数的女学生就犹如万绿丛中一点红。黄曼仪(Chelcy Wong Mun Ei)和梁雪芬(Isabell Ling Sharfen )就是这片荆棘中的两朵红玫瑰,她们选择这门科系,完全发自纯粹的兴趣,同时也对这不断推陈出新的工业有自己的一套想法。 《继续阅读》……

国内的电子竞技大赛(eSports tournaments)人数一直在逐渐上升。

(2015年6月26日) 英迪国际大学及学院为电子竞技风靡全球铺平了道路

你是否曾经被叫去户外活动,而不是抱着你的视频游戏机?

事实证明,这可能即将成为过去,因为国内的电子竞技大赛(eSports tournaments)人数一直在逐渐上升。毕竟,他们可以用在视频游戏比赛赢得的一万令吉奖金来资助大学学费。

电子竞技(eSports)是专业的和结构性的视频游戏比赛,玩家之间互相战斗,以在技能上较量高低。

对于Jheston Yee来说,游戏一直都占了他生活中的大部分时间。但直到最近他才开始积极在大学校园推广电子竞技。

Jheston Yee目前就读于在梳邦英迪国际学院(INTI International College Subang),这名22岁的商科生表示:“我父母一开始也对我参与电子竞技抱持着犹豫的态度,因为人们普遍认为电子竞技是一个浪费时间的爱好。但最终他们意识到,科技正在慢慢赶上世界。此外,还有一些研究表明,游戏有助于提高个人的认知能力。” 《继续阅读》……

專才抑或通才?

headerSPM

(2011年03月08日)2010年SPM放榜的跫音漸近,許多學子已經開始規劃升學計劃,準備選修甚麼科系。由於大馬教育制度傾向填鴨式,一試定終生,許多學生往往會在升學的十字路口徘徊、猶豫。

在突破傳統思維的知識經濟產生後,畢業後是專才還是通才,眾說紛紜。世界高等教育兩大強國的制度南轅北轍。在學士學位前段,美國全面實施不分院、系,英國則一進大學即接受專業的分系課程。

在學士學位階段,選修單一科系,能夠提早確定自己的職業生涯,不必在修讀時仍在摸索志向,比其他人捷足先登,早日圓夢。倘若一邊跨系學習,一邊探索興趣,不僅勞神費時,所學的課程複雜繁多,最後可能事倍功半。 《继续阅读》……
