An adaptive framework for the creation of exergames for intangible cultural heritage (ICH) education

Study Field
Culture and tourism, Training, Cultural Heritage Preservation
Summary
This paper focuses on the design and development of a novel framework for the rapid design of body-motion-based customizable game-like applications. Results showed that the use of such a game-like application could be efficient, as positive feedback was obtained. In summary, participants found that the generated game-like application meets its objectives; it is generally efficient and satisfactory and offers a novel tool for ICH transmission and education. Last but not the least, the dance experts expressed their interest in developing more such games in the future, since they characterized the game design module as easy and intuitive to use.
Innovative VR tools and techniques
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.
VR in education
The participants found that the generated game-like application meets its objectives; it is generally efficient and satisfactory and offers a novel tool for intangible cultural heritage (ICH) transmission and education.
