Abstract:

<p>Learning Programming concepts are widely known to be hardest thing with respect to novice learners. Here, we propose learn concepts via serious games together with Linear programmed instruction methodology provides innovative ways to become more engaged in Learning with intrinsic motivation. The Game is based on visualizations of different programming concepts as real life scenarios and on the interpretation of concepts. Intention is to renovate novice to expert in an effortless environment which allows them to practice, make mistakes and learn. Associated review section caused learner to complete levels quicker, providing amplified understanding. The results demonstrate that the students are fascinated towards computer games towards learning of programming concepts. Students responded that, game based learning is motivating, entertaining, concepts in programming can be visualized and learnt owing to game playing and game encourages intrinsic motivation to deeper learning. © 2015 IEEE.</p>
