Silence of the Terminals
An Australian group is currently developing an educational game based on the Torque engine. It is a First Person Shooter in Capture the Flag mode. At key points, multiple choice questions pop up and force the player to answer correctly to move on without penalty.
I evaluated it without an opponent so I can't comment on the competitive play experience but the weapons and navigation are decent.
The current questions are on HTML coding but it could be adapted easily to other areas.
Download the game here.

This is the True/False quiz for organic chemistry 241. A working version of the map was uploaded and the nonworking version was deleted. However, I still cannot see all the pick-up objects I placed in the rooms. I put a post about this on the UT discussion board and hopefully someone will know how to fix it.
Zip file with map and textures.

Virtual Orgo Race Nov 19
There will be a virtual Unreal Tournament (Educational Version) Race on Sat Nov 19, 2005 at noon EST (posted at that time here and on the EduFrag wiki). Anyone in the world can compete. Anyone can also submit true and false doors till the day before the race and I'll include the contributions if they are usable. Email me at email@example.com when you complete the race. The winner will have to provide a screencast for proof. The free CamStudio or Camtasia can be used for this.
The topics include Lewis structures, Newman projections, Fisher projections, free radical halogenation, chirality, SN1, SN2, E1 and E2 mechanisms. The study material is covered in the organic chemistry screencasts for CHEM 241 at Drexel.
Practice on examples here.
The prize should be appreciated by any serious organic chemistry student.
