Games are becoming increasingly popular for teaching. They are considered to result in a wide range of learning benefits like, increase of learning effectiveness, increased interest and motivation, and reduction of training time and instructor load. However, most of these claims seem not rigorously established due to a lack of sufficient empirical support. So in order to guide decisions about whether to use a games for certain educational purposes, we developed and evaluated MEEGA – a model for assessing the quality of educational games through case studies using a standardized questionnaire.  The model can be used to assess aspects of motivation, user experience and learning games.
