Gabr, Fatema Mohsen; Abdennadher, Slim
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Mobile Learning (11th, Madeira, Portugal, Mar 14-16, 2015)
Walk like An Egyptian is a location-based, mobile native game developed for tourists. The game provides information for tourists about the touristic places, motivates nationals to visit their historical sights and increase their cultural heritage awareness enabling them to explore the past and connect with it. At the same time, the game allows to gather information and data about the visited places as a side effect of playing. The data could be in a form of annotated photos, comments and reviews. This paper also provides some quantitative and qualitative analysis of the game. [For the full proceedings, see ED562096.]
