About this Episode

Pearson is not a favorite company of most college students. Something about buying $200 textbooks for every class every year rubs students the wrong way, who woulda thought?

That hasn't stopped the company from releasing a new standard for esports curriculum in the UK in partnership with the British Esports Assosciation. I highlight some of the potential issues with the curriculum but check out this Esports Insider deep dive if you want to learn more about how this curriculum was created and how Pearson is hoping to turn professors who haven't played a video game in fifteen years into knowledgable guides of esports.
