Descripción
Students usually love games. They captivate their attention and hold it for lengthy periods of time. Educational systems have taken advantage of this fact and have used games in education for many years. However, teachers cannot create their own games as easily as they create other learning objects. A tool to assist this labor would be very useful for them. In this paper, we present NICE-Game, an innovative game-like educational content creation tool. It is divided into two modules, the builder to create the games and the viewer to play them. With NICE-Game, different kinds of educational contents (i.e. images, videos, texts) can be easily integrated into a game. Using personal handheld devices is a growing trend among students, hence multi-platform and multi-device issues have been also considered in this implementation. Details about the design, development and the tool itself are explained in this paper as well as an example of an educational game available online.
