Hi, I’m Charlie Williams, the Chief Editor of the fictional digital publication company, Certitude. I’m just wanting to let everyone know about a wonderful online game that I’m in, alongside my colleague Kris Fulglesang and our Certitude writers, Jose, Akiko, Jane and Samaira. Then there’s Freddie … but enough about him for now.
In the game you’ll be our Fact-Checker, helping us out by finding any errors in the articles before we publish them.
At first, you’ll only need to find simple errors like spelling mistakes, but as you progress through the levels it gets a bit more complicated. For example, you’ll need to make sure the articles are referenced correctly, and the information used is reliable and accurate.
Some of our writers have a few quirks – but you’ll learn about all that soon enough.
Don’t worry – there’s plenty of help available from Kris throughout the game and a short tutorial on how to play. I should also mention you’ll be rewarded for doing a good job.
Not only is it fun to play, but you’ll also develop some useful skills to help with study and work.
We hope you’ll check it out at https://certitude.ourplaylab.com/, and let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
See you at the office!
