Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to present a detailed and comprehensive design and evaluation of a 3D collaborative game using the OpenSim virtual world platform. The aim of the game is to develop the collaboration skills of the students, give them a new perspective of knowledge acquisition, combine fun with learning and give teachers a new and innovating educational tool for the learning process. The evaluation results are very promising, as far as the students are concern for two reasons: a) because they believe that the virtual game activity improves the effectiveness of the knowledge acquisition and b) they recommend the addition of such activities in educational programs.
