AbstractThe state of technology is evolving each year, computers get faster and smaller and more and more parts of society get enhanced with it. Education is one of these areas that could benefit from the progress made in technology. This paper explores the possibilities and benefits of mobile location-based learning games and tools for creating such applications. We built a web platform for creating location-based content. The development process and design considerations to expand the functionality for creating context-based games will be documented in this paper. Finally, the results of two user tests will be presented. Both tests were conducted with primary school children to focus on use cases in the educational system.
