Editorial: Comparing Educational Modelling Languages on the “Planet Game” Case Study

Vignollet, L., Martel, C., & Burgos, D. (2010). Editorial: Comparing Educational Modelling Languages on the” Planet Game” Case Study. Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2008(2), Art-14.


A few eLearning research teams promoting a scenario-based approach have adopted the IMS-LD specification, At the same time, other teams have developed other notations, languages and meta-models related to IMS-LD, along with tools and methodologies for modelling and implementing learning activities on eLearning platforms. The aim of this special issue is to share and confront approaches (i.e., models, tools and methodologies) through modelling experiences of collaborative learning activities. There is a starting point focused on a common case study, called “Planet Game” or “Astronomy Game”, which is modelled and implemented with a very specific approach in every paper.
