Dubai Tourism has launched ‘Dubai Expert’, an online educational game that has been created exclusively for travel agents in collaboration with the Dubai College of Tourism (DCT) and KTM Advance, a specialist in e-learning.

It features an engaging interface that includes information on Dubai’s tourism attractions in an easily-digestible format.

Dubai Expert operates as a turn-based card game, where participants need to select the best cards – each with an attraction in the city – from an automatically generated deck, to create an ideal itinerary for a traveller. Various traveller profiles make up the 30 ‘missions’ of the game, with the best combination of activities earning higher scores.

The platform also includes 25 videos from experts, that serve as a guide of what to do in Dubai – including family entertainment, gastronomy, shopping, theme parks, culture and heritage amongst others.

Participants can become a ‘Dubai Expert’ by completing 20 successful missions and watching all 25 expert videos, with a higher ‘Dubai Expert’ level achieved by completing all 30 missions and answering all pop-up questions about the city. To maintain their status, agents are required to return to the game every year and complete updated missions.
