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.
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.
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.

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.
