MAGELLAN User Workshop at Coventry University

The MAGELLAN User Workshop took place on 5th October 2016 at Coventry University, UK. This workshop was organised by the SGI and was attended by approximately 20 academics and professionals from creative industries.

The MAGELLAN project and the MAGELLAN Authoring Tool (MAT) platform were presented during the workshop. MAGELLAN hands-on training sessions were also included in the workshop in order to provide the complete vision of the tool. The participants became familiar with the capabilities and features of the MAT platform and had the opportunity to interact with it by creating mini games at the end of the workshop. A constructive discussion and evaluation session followed in which the participants made valuable remarks concerning their experience in using the MAT. Suggestion for its future improvement were also made and will be considered for the development of the MAT. Overall, the participants embraced the tool as an innovative application that can be used for the creation of location-based games.
