Framework for Multi-player GameWall Interaction
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes the experiences and results made by developing a multimodal web application framework. The framework, called FIGA, is to assist developers in creating web applications where users share a common screen. The applications are platform independent and highly accessible, with an entertainment or educational payload. The report consists of four major parts, namely a prestudy, the FIGA development, the implementation of application prototypes, and an evaluation of these prototypes.The prestudy introduces the hardware and software aspects of FIGA in terms of expected devices and web development. Developing FIGA is explained both in terms of the software architecture of the framework, in addition to the experiences of creating application prototypes based on FIGA. Each of the developed FIGA applications sheds light on different aspects and requirements demanded by different types of applications, specifically video games and educational applications. The evaluation of the prototypes shows that web applications reaches the look and feel of native applications, as well as documenting the positive responses of effortless connectivity and having no installation procedures. Two experiments gave valuable feedback on the usability and show an increase in perceived learning by using educational applications made with FIGA in a classroom setting.
