libadapt - A generic framework to add adaptivity to game-based learning (GBL) applications

Project description

About

libadapt is a generic framework to add adaptivity to game-based learning (GBL) applications.

This library implements the following architecture:

Adaptor.adapt_to() should be called from the main loop of an interactive application with updated measurement to base the adaptation on.

The internal calling order is:

Adaptor.adapt_to()

    Adaptor.quantify()

    Adaptor.log()

    Adaptor.compare()

    Adaptor.check_threshold()

    Adaptor.intervene()

It is based on an architecture first published in:

Florian Berger. Evaluating an implementation of an adaptive game-based learning architecture. In Proceedings of UMAP 2012, 2012
