The environment of the game is similar tothat of many popular adventure games which have many virtual theme worlds with castles and enemies that the player has to navigate through and achieve the goal of reaching the exit.
The educational game is called VIRGE (Virtual Reality Game for English) and intends to motivate and engage students through the use of a game.
The difference of the educational game is that one must fight one’s way through by using one’s knowledge.
ILTS may be combined with the technology of Virtual Reality games and used over the Web for teaching English as a second language.
The benefits of the combination of the above technologies are particularly important for the domain of a foreign language teaching because they allow the creation of engaging and motivating educational applications that are cross-cultural.
