Would You Like to Play a Game? Experience and Expectation in Game-Based Learning Environments (bibtex)
by Morie, Jacquelyn, Tortell, Rebecca and Williams, Josh
Abstract:
We present results from a series of experiments that looked at how previous experience and immediate priming affect a user's arousal state, performance and memory in a virtual environment used for training. We found that people's game play experience had effects on these measures, and that if participants expected the environment to be a game, they approached it with expectations that were not always conducive to optimal training. We suggest that the type of game being used for training will have the best outcome if users are familiar with that mode and have the appropriate schema to approach the training.
