“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
-Benjamin Franklin

Tesseract is a game development and visualization studio housed at the University of Arkansas and headed by David Fredrick, Associate Professor of Classical Studies in the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, and Director of Humanities. The core mission of Tesseract is the creation of immersive/game-based content for courses and research, with undergraduate and graduate student developers playing an integral part. Through the interdisciplinary, project-based process of game design, Razorbacks teach Razorbacks, both in making the content and in “playing” it as part of course modules or research projects.
