Game Based Learning

Requirement

XYZ is the provider of world’s leading fitness education across the globe. In most developed countries, the number of children who are overweight is raising at an alarming rate. To tackle obesity in children and spread awareness of a balanced diet, XYZ wanted to create a course that would help learner identify the key ingredients found in everyday food that are vital for growth, such as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, calcium, and fibre and minerals, and the importance of a healthy diet to children. Since the target audience were children, these learning objects had to be highly engaging, innovative, and entertaining.

Solution

Keeping the audience in mind, we created a learning agent that children could relate to and take advice from?Nutrinoboy, a superhero who fights diseases and nutritional related illnesses. Nutrinoboy provides the information about key nutrients and the right proportion of food stuff required for a healthy diet.

Games are proven to be the best in retaining learner interest and motivating them to learn. ITAD designed and developed two custom game-based interactivities.

In the first activity, learners had to visit a virtual supermarket and identify the key nutrients in common food items. Every time the learner identified the food item, the key nutrient of that item was provided. This strategy helped the learners identify the key nutrients in everyday food items and assisted the learners to retain this information.

The second activity was a custom maze game where users had to guide Nutrinoboy through a maze and collect ingredient (food items) to create a magic potion (balanced diet). Most common healthy and unhealthy food items?Bread, Milk, Eggs, Chicken, Ice-cream, French fries, etc.?were interspersed in the maze. The learner had to make Nutrinoboy run and jump to collect the appropriate food items and create the magic potion. This game helped the learners understand how to mix and match various everyday food items and collect the appropriate quantity of key nutrients required for a healthy, balanced diet.

ITAD used a cartoonish approach to deliver the information. The course was developed using high-end graphics and animations, along with engaging interactivities that aid the cognitive process of learning.

Challenges
