What To Expect With An Esports Class | CheckpointXP On Campus Download

11:09 Download August 19th

During a recent episode of CheckpointXP On Campus, we discussed an esports minor degree at Northern Illinois University. Interest in gaming is growing with game streaming/esports growing and no sports for a couple of major conferences in the fall. So NIU resolved to create a program that not only focused on coaching and strategy but also marketing and game design.
