Abstract

Interest is a critical element for student learning and should be cultivated. To this end, different interest development models have been investigated. This study focuses on interest loop, which comprises three components, including triggering, immersing, and extending interest. Based on the interest loop, this study proposes a game-based model for Chinese character learning. In addition, a learning system, named CharacterMonster, is also implemented to realize this conceptual model for examining its feasibility. The detailed functions of the system are described in this paper.
