Abstract

In the era of e-services such as e-learning, e-government, e-business, etc. enhancing such services and adapting them to one's personal needs is a very promising way for the user to benefit even further from them. As a step forward in the development of adaptive learning systems with integrated game elements it is first necessary to review different types of games and their characteristics. Moreover, it is important to take into account gaming styles as well as to summarize the processes of learning and playing by mapping learning styles corresponding to different gaming styles. This paper attempts to investigate and describe different gaming issues as a first step toward building a software framework for the integration of game elements utilized in e-learning.
