The World Wide Workshop relies on its partners to help grow, innovate and expand the Globaloria Network in countries and communities around the world. The Globaloria Partnership comprises the following components:

  1. Access to an open-source platform with a set of simple educational games, tutorials & simulations for young people to play, modify and critique while learning basic game-design skills.
  2. A customizable wiki where community members create, showcase, discuss and collaborate while following a 1-year curriculum using a set of personal and team assignments tailored to the learning goals of any specific community or game-dev club.
  3. A dynamic blog for participants to log their experiences, dialogue, and support one another.
  4. Extensive administrator interface and tools that enable ongoing personalization and ownership of the platform (website and wiki) for any learning needs and objectives.
  5. Continued 24/7 virtual support from the Globaloria team of experts.
  6. A flexible interface to publish games and tutorials created by the community.
