Lessons Learned While Building a Aarrative Interactive Platform
The adventure of building narrative interactive platforms for children started with OAK (The Online Annotation Kit), which provides a simple mean to create narrative WOz scenarios. This methodology lead to a series of real-world experiments with children from different schools in Normandy, France. The experiments allowed us to test our design, learn some valuable lessons and iterate into a new distributed component-based architecture, called AgentSlang. In this talk, I will share my experience during the design, testing and enhancements of the narrative platform.
