Designing serious gameplay from the ground up

Hall, Joshua (2015) Designing serious gameplay from the ground up. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis investigated the use, design and evaluation of video games created for educational purposes. The outcomes from the research include analysis tools and design processes that can be used in the design and development of serious games, as well as games that can be used for training purposes. The contribution of this thesis is a greater understanding of how these types of video games lead to educational improvement, and how we can successfully frame game design and development processes to ensure such positive outcomes.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
