RPG’s (role-playing games) are becoming more popular and don’t need to be played in your mother’s basement.

I am looking for an easy gaming platform to use in my classroom. I would like it handle single, coop, and multiplayer versions of educational games. I would like it to connect my classroom and other classrooms so interactions can take place between students. As a Steam user, my thoughts came quickly to your platform and how easy it is to connect to other players. I have been using games to educate for many years. The most popular game I use is Civilization IV.
