Dr. Moshell has a background in computer science, which he taught from 1975 through 2000. He served as the founding Program Director for Digital Media at UCF in 2002, and as Division Head from 2002 to 2005. Moshell's interests center on the use of graphics, games and the Internet for the creation of situations where students learn from each other.
In 1997 and 1998, Moshell led a team of Digital Media students in the design of a role playing game about Maya archaeology. Part of the team went into the jungles of Belize to document and film the archaeology project at Caracol. These images were then incorporated into an experimental role playing game, Caracol Time Travel.
In 2006, Moshell created Turtle Haircut Productions (THP), a simulated game production company that is run by UCF students. THP designs, builds and tests role-playing games for learning, using state of the art game engines and Digital Asset Management systems developed in the Digital Asset Laboratory. Dr. Moshell received his Ph.D in Computer Science from Ohio State University in 1975.
