Effective education in the field of traffic operations and control requires efficient delivery of theory, applications, and live demonstration or tutorials to help students understand the subject. While practical engineering knowledge is usually imparted through carefully designed experiments conducted in laboratories, traffic operations require repetitive observation of traffic behavior (or simulated traffic) under different control actions. This paper describes a web game developed on a .NET framework to complement a Traffic Engineering course. The game is assessed for its impact on student engagement using survey questions based on the Situational Motivational Scale (SIMS).
