Learning with AE2 Commander

AE2 Commander aims to explore the role of ‘serious gaming’ and simulation as strategies for online learning in the archives space. The project also explores the transformational potential of serious games in terms of user engagement with archival sources.

To assist us with this investigation, you are invited to complete an online survey and quiz available via this link.

Under the ECU Ethics Committee approved research protocol for this project, anonymous data gathered via the survey and also via access logs:

  1. Will be analyzed to determine the pattern of user behavior within the 2-D & 3-D deliverables
  2. Used to assess learning outcomes for some learning tasks
  3. Used to analyze the role of demographics and other independent variables in engagement with the 2-D & 3-D deliverables

A full description of the research protocols and informed consent can be found in the introduction to the survey.
