A conceptual framework for serious games

Yusoff, Amri, Crowder, Richard, Gilbert, Lester and Wills, Gary (2009) A conceptual framework for serious games At Ninth IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies, Latvia. 15 - 17 Jul 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A considerable number of serious games have been developed over the last ten years, with varying degrees of success. Due to a lack of clear standards and guidelines for game developers, it is difficult to justify claims that a specific game meets the learner’s requirements and/or expectations. This paper defines a conceptual model for serious games that will contribute to their design and the measurement of achievement in meeting their learning outcomes.
