Amongst virtual reality applications and experimental installations, the incluMOVE prototype was accepted as a demo paper for the German HCI conference Mensch und Computer 2020 (September 6-9). In a YouTube livestream we presented this contribution with the incluMOVE demonstrator representing the ACI.

Every year, designers, developers and scientists from the fields of usability and user experience come together at Mensch und Computer. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference did not take place in Magdeburg but virtually. In Zoom rooms and YouTube streams, workshops were held for four days and new scientific findings and work were presented.

We introduced our demo paper “A gamified and adaptive learning system for neurodivergent workers in electronic assembling tasks”. Accompanying this paper, a short video gives an overview of the components of our gamification system. In addition, we also presented a live demo in the MUC 2020 YouTube stream.

The user interface of the incluMOVE demonstrator combines the systems Conversational UI, Gamification and Adaptivity. Our virtual assistant Gregor Gouda guides the user through the application. He welcomes the user, supports and explains every single step in the Conversational UI and helps to evaluate the user’s progress.

The design of our gamification elements such as badges and milestones are influenced by the easy-going mouse Gregor. Badges can be collected for quantities and successes in speed as well as error-free work and are visualized by a particle animation at the end of a work unit.

To meet the requirements of our diverse user group, an editor tool was integrated into the system. This enables a supervisor to edit any element such as sound, text or pick-by-light projection and thus to build customized workflows for each employee.

An adaptivity feature makes it possible to give each element an adaptivity level. This allows the user to specify during work whether he wants to have more, or fewer support elements displayed.
