An OpenTree adventure

Home An OpenTree adventure


OpenTree was a game-based website designed as an informal space to encourage students to engage with online library resources with the aim of helping students improve their digital literacy and confidence. Created as part of the Library Futures project OpenTree used a tailored version of the LibraryGame software adapted to reflect the online and digital Open University library focus for students.  OpenTree allowed students to acquire badges and points for accessing library resources and also allowed users to share and comment on library resources and save them to a personal bookshelf. 

OpenTree closed down in summer 2017 and the data within the system has been deleted.
