educational games and game-like simulations in educational processes in
general and Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) in particular. It has been
developed by the e-learning research group at the Universidad Complutense de
Madrid (http://www.e-ucm.es). With e-Adventure, any person can write an
educational point & click adventure game. Also it is very simple to create
first person simulations based on photos, which can be very useful for
training or teaching procedural knowledge.
The platform includes special features targeting educational environments,
such as built-in assessment and debriefing and the possibility of
automatically exporting the games as standards-compliant Learning Objects
(packaged according to the IMS Content Packaging specification and marked
with IEEE LOM metadata). The games can thus be deployed without effort in
different VLEs and stored in content repositories (now we are in the
process of integrating e-Adventure with LAMS).
these 12 months it has reached over 3.000 downloads from sourceforge.net. We
are now gearing up for the imminent release of
gathering feature requests for v2.0. We would like to invite as much
feedback from current and prospective users as possible, so that we can
incorporate it into our release process.
The tools, a short descriptive video, and a detailed tutorial, are here:
We would love to hear your comments and, if you create an interesting game
and wish to give it some exposure, we can make it available through our
website (properly credited, of course). Don't forget to have fun!
