Abstract: Research has indicated that games can positively impact learning by providing a potentially motivating and engaging learning environment that can complement traditional education. This is especially important for such domains as History, which students often consider to be one of the least appealing learning subjects. In this paper, we present the design of the prototype online game HistoryLand, along with an evaluation study conducted in the context of a Greek primary school course on Modern History. The aim of this study was to explore the impact of the game on students’ immersion, collaboration, knowledge improvement and enjoyment. The findings of the study revealed a positive students’ opinion about the HistoryLand game, which was perceived as useful for comprehension of the historical events discussed in class.
