Abstract

Taiwan's Hakka culture is unique in the world. Rapidly assimilated by contemporary Taiwanese society, the unique Hakka culture needs to be preserved. Several Hakka culture parks have been established in the past 10 years for exhibiting traditional Hakka life. However, paying a visit to these parks seems to be monotonous and lacking incentive for people to do so. This study developed a mobile game-based learning tool for students to recognize the traditional Hakka culture. Mobile technologies and game schemes were employed simultaneously for developing the activities. In order to enhance the learning motivation, students have to pass a sequence of challenges during the gameplay. The gaming location is intended to be the Taipei City Hakka Cultural Park, in which various Hakka cultures and crafts are available. A questionnaire survey is purposed to investigate student's game satisfaction and information system acceptance. It is expected that Hakka culture recognition will be improved by this mobile game-based learning tool.
