In a master thesis done in 2007, Ole Kristian Mørch-Storstein and Terje Øfsdahl have explored concept of game to be used in higher education and develop a prototype game to further evaluate that concept. Their game has three components; the first one is the server part running on a server. This component connect to a database and provide the services to the others component. The second component is called teacher client, when running the game on a lecture the teacher will use this one to show the game. This one runs on the teacher computer such as a laptop or a PC. The last component is the one running on a mobile phone of students; they will use it to interact with the game. The purpose of the previous game is about illustrating the concept of using game in the lecture.
