Abstract

Many theories have arisen about how to design serious games, but the ideas presented are often disparate, or miss important aspects arisen in others, making further advancement in the field more difficult. To solve this problem, a model is proposed in this paper to help design more effective serious games. The model integrates key characteristics of learning, gameplay, and serious game theories to outline the key considerations in compelling educational gameplay.
