What Is eSports?

eSports, also known as electronic sports, is a term to describe organized, competitive video gaming. Most commonly, eSports takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions between individual players and teams. These games can range from multi-player online battle arenas to single-player first-person shooters, and virtual reconstructions of physical sports to survival battle royales.

The Benefits for Students

Because many eSports are played as a team, every game requires students to work collaboratively with their teammates. Teamwork is essential for a high-performance team to reach its goals. eSports helps students build strong communication, collaboration, and teamwork skills, plus it can help players develop soft skills, problem-solving skills, and social skills.
