Game-Based Mobile Learning System for Campus on Android Platform

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6872)


This paper proposes a game-based mobile learning system for both indoor and outdoor learning in campus which could enhance the self-directed learning for students. In this paper, we propose the system design and the learning activity that will be incorporated into the two and half dimentional campus environment. The navigation features of our system are useful for situation learning in a natural environment. By using game-based learning method, we hope that students will learn more in depth information and get more knowledge by their own interests.
