Team Skyfall is building a mobile application targeted preliminarily for iOS on iPads which will be used by the UBC ALIVE Labs for assessment of scientific inquiry learning in immersive virtual environments. The objective of the project is to create an extendable application that will be able encompass various instances of ecological problems and will provide the users with the tools to perform scientific analysis to unveil the root cause of said unusual ecological happenings. The in-game interaction data generated by users will be collected and assessed by the UBC ALIVE Labs to look for emerging patterns. Within the given objective, ALIVE Labs is specifically interested in seeing how technology and log-file data enables students to utilize feedback and how this feedback changes their in-game behavior.
