but maybe a first at a random liberal arts college
Starcraft Strategy was being taught at UC Berkley long before Portal

& the Starcraft final:
There will be a final project where students will present and explain their contribution to the Starcraft Community. This may take the form of an essay detailing new theory or calculations, or an in-depth analysis of a significant game. Whichever final project is chosen will be displayed or published on a public forum for peer criticism.

I always thought they should take Portal and use it in a physics class. How cool would it be if at the end of class the teacher handed you a controller and said, "beat this game if you want to pass this class"
