Journal Article
Grey, S., Grey, D., Gordon, N., & Purdy, J. (2017). Using formal game design methods to embed learning outcomes into game mechanics and avoid emergent behaviour. International Journal of Game-Based Learning, 7(3), 63-73 . https://doi.org/10.4018/ijgbl.2017070106

This paper offers an approach to designing game based learning experiences inspired by the Mechanics-Dynamics-Aesthetics (MDA) model (Hunicke et al, 2004) and the elemental tetrad (Schell, 2008) model for game design. A case for game based learning a... Read More about Using formal game design methods to embed learning outcomes into game mechanics and avoid emergent behaviour.

The complex formation of Islamic Geometric Patterns (IGP) is one of the distinctive features in Islamic art and architecture. Many have attempted to reproduce these patterns in digital form, using various pattern generation techniques, in 2D. Shape g...

Randomised controlled trial of video clips and interactive games to improve vision in children with amblyopia using the I-BiT system (2016)
Journal Article
Herbison, N., MacKeith, D., Vivian, A., Purdy, J., Fakis, A., Ash, I. M., …Foss, A. J. (2016). Randomised controlled trial of video clips and interactive games to improve vision in children with amblyopia using the I-BiT system. British journal of ophthalmology, 100(11), 1511-1516. doi:10.1136/bjophthalmol-2015-307798

Background Traditional treatment of amblyopia involves either wearing a patch or atropine penalisation of the better eye. A new treatment is being developed on the basis of virtual reality technology allowing either DVD footage or computer games whic...
