DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF ONLINE EDUCATIONAL GAMES BASED ON QUESTIONS

Abstract

Thousands and thousands of electronic contents have been developed in e-learning models and platforms to support the student’s learning process. Generally, e-contents are complete, well designed and correct, but sometimes they can result boring for students. One example is the self-evaluation and self-training process that is generally conducted by the student through the resolution of test questions presented in a multiple-choice exam. However, a simple multiple-choice test is boring for students and they will need content that is motivating and enjoyable. In this contribution, we propose the use of educational games as a tool for students to carry out the process self-training and self-evaluation. The set of games are included in a SCORM learning module, so its use is extended to any e-learning platform.
