On 10.12.2010 “3D-NordOst” the 14th applied workshop for acquisition, modeling, processing and evaluation of 3D data took in the rooms of GFal place. The PlayFM team has presented a presentation about â€ś3D modeling for the design of Serious Games in Facility Managementâ€ť. Our project found a big echo in the 3D society. Our contribution was published in the proceedings book (ISBN 978-3-942709-00-2).
Frank is back from the ECEL 2010. The European Conference on E-Learning (04.11. – 06.11.2010 in Porto) is an annual event with a comprehensive program in the field of E-Learning. This year the host was the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP). Frank has introduced the project playFM and answered critical questions of scientists, teachers and students. Some innovative ideas from the scientific world of Serious Games will enter in playFM. Altogether the ECEL 2010 was a well succeeded conference.

On Wednesday and Thursday the 13th and 14th we have visited the Serious Games exhibition â€ťSpielend Lernenâ€ť in Rostock on Fraunhofer-Institut for graphical data processing and weâ€™ve became acquainted with scientific representatives of Germans young Serious Games branch. Once more we met also colleagues from university cologne from the Gamescom in August so we inter-exchanged about Game Based Learning, target groups and didactical switching technology. The presentations on â€žSpielend Lernenâ€ś depicted the whole spectrum of different application forms, target groups and design styles from actual learning games. The interest of the exhibition visitors for the solution approaches from the lecturer led to worthwhile discussions past of the respective presentation. Despite a small amount of participants the subject Serious Games was comment from all aspects. Genre discussions, questions about mobility of Learning Games or the clarification of game conceptions were presented well content wise under much more issues in listed below contributions. The event provided us a very well overview about current levels diverse research projects and enabling it to file our own project in the frame of established Learning Games. … read more
