TOMSK, Sep 22 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk State University (TSU) in cooperation with other Russian universities will develop computer games to study the impact of eSports on cognitive abilities and psychoemotional state of a person; the games will be designed for mass consumers, Rector of the university Eduard Galazhinsky told journalists in an interview with Tomsk media.

Earlier it was reported that TSU has joined a consortium of 35 universities to study the impact of computer games on social, cognitive and personal skills of a person. The project is expected to provide additional information on students and help build individual educational trajectories for them. The world's largest network of eSports clubs Colizeum has expressed interest in the consortium's work.

"We set ourselves and our partners the task of creating and developing games that develop cognitive and personal abilities and lead people to their highest manifestations. How to use traditional gamifying factors to develop human potential is a big question", – Galazhinsky said.

He noted that thousands of students – mostly those who are far removed from eSports - would be participants in the research. Our logic is not "eSports for the sake of sports", when for the sake of argument 300 people are engaged professionally and the other 15 thousand are not. For me, for example, it is more important that these 15 thousand are engaged. We need to tighten up the whole system", – the rector added.

The first meeting of university rectors and industrial partners interested in the project took place last week.

More details about the new educational and research projects of the Big University of Tomsk can be found in an interview with Eduard Galazhinsky on the website of RIA Tomsk.
