An Interactive IT Security Teaching Experience
Based on Computer Security Literacy: Staying Safe in a Digital World

Hackerville User Experiences

Hackerville is an all-inclusive project, focused on teaching all age groups about computer security and why it still applies to them. Based on the person, users can interact in Hackerville as…


Students “rent” their own virtual apartment and play as a resident in the Hackerville, living in the online environment.


Teachers play as landlords, who “own” the apartment complex that houses their students’ apartments.


Guest users play as tourists, who can visit public places like the visitor center, library and coffee shop.


Those who do not play but want to learn about Hackerville can visit the Hackerville Chamber of Commerce.
