Developing a vision and integrating it into a process architecture

In order to realize the vision the project's interdisciplinary research efforts and outcomes, 80Days utilized state-of-the-art psycho-pedagogical design, game design, and game development, implementing competitive technology. This resulted in attractive examples of an entirely new horizon of DEGs. The baseline architecture for 80Days’s DEG technology integrates game technology (i.e., the game engine and its sub-components like character engine, physics engine, etc.) with an adaptive engine (which drives assessment as well as psycho-pedagogical interventions and game engine behavior) and a narration engine (which interacts with the adaptive engine and drives narrative style and progress). Those three “core engines” retrieve information and rules from an ontological backbone including educational, narrative, and learning resource descriptions.
