Students' Enjoyment of a Game-Based Tutoring System
Many Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) have started to incorporate game-based components in an attempt to improve student engagement during system interactions. iSTART-ME is a new game-based learning environment that was developed on top of an existing ITS (iSTART). Initial investigations focused on individual, isolated components. However, to increase ecological validity, the current study was designed such that a smaller number of students (n=9) engaged with the entire system over an extended period of time, spanning several weeks. The participants indicated that they enjoyed the game-based aspects of the system significantly more than the non-game aspects. These results support the use of iSTART-ME as a system that promotes long-term enjoyment.
