Abstract

Feedback and cues are an important part of helping a learner in an effective learning process. This also applies in the context of multi-touch learning games. Help systems for providing this support have in principle similar requirements and functionalities. Currently, however, such a system must be implemented individually for each game. The aim of this work is the creation of a module which considerably simplifies the implementation of a help system. For this purpose, different forms and influences of feedback are analyzed and a corresponding technical implementation derived. By incorporating modern design frameworks, the architecture of this module is created based on this. After a detailed essay on the implementation of this draft, the integration of the module for creating a help system will be explained. Subsequently, the first experiences of an educational game developer with the use of the module are shown and possible further developments are presented.
