Gamification Under the Hood - Using Game Technology for Building an Interactive Math Learning System

Jan Simon, Georg J. Schneider

Abstract

The papers describes the implementation of an interactive math learning system using the game engine Unity3D. We will focus on the implementation aspects of interactive learning systems using this game engine, since the game development approach as well as the use of this specific game engine bring along several benefits, like device independence and reactivity.
