With degrees in both computer science and art & design Ben Huckaby has been interested in interactive media ever since he discovered that it existed. He is especially interested in how games, gamification, and XR experiences can help students gain unique hands-on experience with subjects that may be hard to effectively teach otherwise and is always on the lookout for ways to make learning more engaging and effective.
In Ben’s role as the Lead Interaction Designer/Developer at NC State DELTA he enjoys working in a multidisciplinary team-centric environment to solve learning challenges and help faculty develop and improve their courses and their reach through technology. He is also passionate about staying active and has a range of hobbies and interests from disc golf to DJing.
