Abstract

This paper discusses a research on the development and evaluation of an edutainment software "MyEdutale" based on a local folktale "The Crane that Rewards Good Deeds" to help motivate socio-cultural awareness among children. The software consists of a 2D animated story, and activity modules of games, maze, puzzles and quiz. Evaluation was carried out in a study involving 30 children ages from five to twelve years old. The questionnaire used consists of 31 questions measuring usability construct of satisfaction, ease of use and effectiveness. Findings indicated that 92% respondents were satisfied using the software, 93% reported that it is easy to use, while 95% agreed that the software is effective in delivering the intended values through the story and reinforced via activity modules. Observation of respondents interacting with MyEdutale showed that girls were more engaged and concentrated more on the story while boys were more interested in the games/activity modules. Findings from this research indicated that a well-designed edutainment software can be used effectively for educating as well entertaining children.
