Learning and gaming at the same time? This approach is combined with so-called serious games.

This year’s GameDays at the TU Darmstadt on 5 July 2022 were all about serious games. But what actually makes a good serious game? This question was addressed by the newly founded RAL Gütegemeinschaft Serious Games e.V.. Prof. Dr. Oliver Korn (Chairman of the Board, ACI Director), Prof. Dr. Anna Lisa Martin-Niedecken (Sphery, Vice Chair), Pascal Tonecker (Crytek, Vice Chair) and Dr. Stefan Göbel (TU Darmstadt, Chairman) presented the quality criteria for “good” serious games.

In the session Serious Games for Vocational Education, Benjamin Schnitzer gave a keynote on the topic of serious games for literacy training in VR. The ACI PhD student is conducting research on this topic as part of the joint project #ABCforJobs.
