Moreno-Ger, P., Burgos, D., Sierra, J. L., & Manjón, B. F. (2007). A game-based adaptive unit of learning with IMS learning design and< e-Adventure>. Creating New Learning Experiences on a Global Scale, 247-261.
In this pa per we illustrate how to conceive, implement and play adaptive Units of Learning (UoLs) that embed educational videogames. For this purpose we describe The Art & Craft of chocolate UoL, with the game Paniel and the chocolate-based sauce adventure as a key feature. The UoL includes a pre-test whose outcome is used to adapt the game. The UoL also assesses the learning process using an in-game exam. This UoL has been modeled using IMS Learning Design (LD), and the embedded game has been developed using the < e − Adventure > educational game engine. This UoL may be deployed in any LD-compliant environment, although some of the features like the adaptation of the game or automatic assessment require special plug-ins that enable the communication between the environment and the < e − Adventure > engine. These plug-ins have been developed as an open-source modification of the SLeD player.
