  • game development (authoring tools, models, game process)
  • behavioral models (machine learning, models, planning)
  • personalization and adaptation (learner model, domain model, error model, tutoring model, machine learning)
  • evaluation ( methodologies, models and metrics; assessment, game experience, effectiveness, efficiency)
  • user modeling (player models, learner models)
  • ...
