College of Education Professor Receives Patent for iMapBooks

Dr. Glenn Gordon Smith, Professor in Instructional Technology, has received a patent for his technology, iMapBooks, which combines books with computer games.

Chapters of web-based eBook narrative text alternate with computer games.  The student reads pages of text, then comes to a computer game relating to what they just read. The reader cannot read on until they have won the game. Conversely, since the game relates to the text narrative, they cannot win the game without paying attention to what is going on in the story. Thus, the games serve as a fun, stealth assessment.
