Our main objective is to produce state-of-the-art edutainment and serious game end-systems, which satisfy the requirements of all three parties involved in the development process: content experts, end-users and application developers. Their requirements are often cross disciplinary, as each party involved in the process requires solutions to a number of problems which need to be answered in a systematic and complete manner. The ultimate goal of this process is to introduce an efficient…

Developing Smart Learning Environments Using Gamification Techniques and Video Game Technologies

This chapter presents how common problems may be resolved via the development of media-rich smart learning environments with the use of proprietary multimedia development environments that do not require advanced programming experience.

Invisible Settlements: Discovering and Reconstructing the Ancient Built Spaces Through Gaming

Throughout the world, settlements invisible to the contemporary eye exist hidden under layers of soil and debris, waiting to be discovered. Their discovery can precede the archaeological excavation

Why Should I Play This Game? The Role of Motivation in Smart Pedagogy

Human behavior is very much based on motivation. For decades, researchers have been trying to describe motives in biological terms, or physiological ones, while others are emphasizing on their



Developing Augmented Reality Applications Using Branded Authoring Environments

This chapter concludes with the presentation of the social software perspective of the communication process, as the application areas and the content domain presented in this work feature clear collaborative potential that needs to be addressed by system design.

Utilising an Educational Framework for the Development of Edutainment Scenarios

Edutainment may be considered a developing contemporary research field particularly as new and open source game development environments are made available to the research community. Nevertheless,

Augmented reality edutainment systems for open-space archaeological environments: The case of the old fortress, Corfu, Greece

This work identifies the role of each building component, describes their interrelationship within the wider context and adopts a suitably designed framework in order to develop multiple guided-tour types.

Multi-modal natural interaction in game design: a comparative analysis of player experience in a large scale role-playing game

This paper presents a generic middleware framework for multi-modal natural interfaces which enables game-independent data acquisition and can then redefine the interaction scheme of any software tool by mapping body poses and voice commands to traditional input means (keyboard and mouse).

A simulation of life in a medieval town for edutainment and touristic promotion

The theoretical questions related to the educational use of Virtual Reality technology are introduced and the steps in the reconstruction of the town of Otranto in the Middle Ages are described: data collection and integration, organization of work, peripherals and software applications.

The Evolution of TV Systems, Content, and Users Toward Interactivity

This study has reviewed the research literature, as well as the industrial developments and identified three concepts that provide a high-level taxonomy of interactive TV research: (1) content editing, (2) content sharing, and (3) content control.

User Interface Design Principles for Interactive Television Applications

The results suggest that a small set of generic principles could support the systematic design of ITV applications and produce a design rationale that is traceable and comparable to alternative solutions, during the process of early product development.

Design of interactive museographic exhibits using Augmented reality

Smart phones are well suited to implement Augmented Reality in the museographic tourist guide as they are lightweight devices that can be carried and manipulated easily.

Story Pacing in Interactive Storytelling

Timing and pacing issues in Interactive Storytelling applications at the conceptual level are discussed and an outlook indicates open issues to be addressed in future research are indicated.
