Dini R., Paterṇ F., Santoro C. An environment to support multi-user interaction and cooperation for improving museum visits through games. In: Human Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services. MobileHCI 2007 (Singapore, 9-12 Settembre 2007). Proceedings, pp. 515 - 521. ACM, 2007.
The availability of mobile and stationary devices opens up new challenges to support users in several contexts. Here we present a multi-device environment to support cooperation among museum visitors through games. In particular, we present a design and the associated implementation for using a combination of PDAs and public displays to enhance the learning experience in a museum setting by using game playing interactions. The basic assumption is to use the mobile devices for individual game play, and the situated displays for synchronized public views of shared game play; the individual game play contributes to the shared game.
