Learning through a Game - Exploring Fun and Learning in a Project Management Game
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this thesis is to explore the teaching capabilities of games by motivating players through fun. We do this by first exploring perspectives of fun and learning in games; project management concepts and previous games. From these findings we implement our own game prototype where the player learns project management concepts simultaneously as they learn the game. This prototype is then evaluated through a number of experiments. Finally we discuss the results of the experiments and conclude upon the viability of the game as a tool to learn about project management.
