Marketing Text This result is a framework for the development of the Serious Sports game, based on competencies identified to be contained within sports-based games, with a view to how these competencies may be potentially made accessible to users via GBL.
Description Following the development of an overview and theoretical framework for sports game development which, among other things, identified the game genre, the target group for the game, some of the parameters, etc. the game framework was developed, describing the elements to be contained within the game and how these interact to facilitate the transfer of information via GBL.
Target group Representatives of final user categories, final users, vocational and training centres, coaches, tutors, policy makers, research institutions
Result The Framework for the Serious Sports game development contributes to the project objectives by identifying the dimensions of the competencies to be contained in the Serious Sports game, the purpose of these elements, the how these interact with each other and how these will contribute to the transfer of competencies via the Serious Sports game.
Area of application
For project partners, the framework identifies the means to develop the game and the overall stages/ steps to take place within the game. This is of particular use for the game development partner. In addition the framework identifies the transfer which can take place and how the transfer is facilitated within the game – which is essential information for developing future results such as the good practice guide and game use information. The framework will also help to develop further project articles/ publications.
For stakeholders such as trainers or coaches, the framework will demonstrate the elements contained within the game and, from an abstract viewpoint, how the overall game process works. For GBL experts (and coaches/ trainers), the framework demonstrates how relevant basketball information is transferred and how the different forms of learning occurs. Finally, for future game developers, or interested parties, the framework will act as a re-usable tool which may be used to help develop similar games in the future, describing the information required to develop the game and how the game process will work.
