Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) As of the early 20th century, a significant body of research has been published that shows how effective game-based learning and gamification techniques can be compared to other methods. However, creating games can be time consuming and usually demands a significant effort. Therefore, this paper focuses on the design and development of a novel framework for the rapid design of body-motion-based customizable game-like applications. This framework consists of two components: i) an interface that allows the user to design the game and capture the motion data, and ii) a customizable game for learning and training using off-the-shelf motion capture sensors like the Microsoft Kinect. The game is automatically configured based on the output of the game design interface. In order to evaluate the proposed system, a pilot use case for the Latin dance Salsa has been selected. Preliminary small-scaled experiments with latin dance students have shown the great potential of the proposed application.
