Özet

This study aims to demonstrate the value of experiencing historical buildings through the digital game-based learning method. A three-dimensional computer game was developed to assess the digital game-based learning method as a supportive hypermedia tool in architectural education. The computer game features interactive game missions that enable students to get a close-up experience of the buildings. As part of the study, an experiment was conducted comparing the digital game-based learning method against other traditional methods in learning about historical buildings. The results of the study show that the digital game-based learning method can serve as a support for lecturing on historical buildings to help improve students' learning experience.
