Digital escape room in education is collaborative activity where students need to solve different puzzles, unlock codes to exit the room. Usually there is a dramatized environment to raise the excitement of the game and students have limited time to solve the clues, that all lead to the meta puzzle. After solving the last (meta) puzzle comes the game to the end.
