Abstract

In order to provide a more relaxing environment where the dental students can learn to memorize the fundamental knowledge as well as the processes and techniques in dental casting, we used the GBL concept as the basis to construct a system model We had taken the process of dental lost-wax casting and integrated through gaming, the theories and practical skills in the dental casting course, to create this educational gaming program. The main functions of this program are to provide (1) a game involving dental casting simulation, (2) a game involving Q&A in dental casting theory, (3) user help during operation, (4) operation evaluation for user and (5) operation summary for user. In addition to the user interface in this program, We also incorporated an Haptic interactive device in wireless vibration feedback for more lively and diverse learning methods in dental casting for learners. This study aimed to establish a learning environment for dental casting through gaming that included the operation in dental lost-wax casting and the study of fundamental knowledge in dental casting.
