Abstract

DGBL is a suitable tool for teaching slow learners, as it allows them to engage actively and practice DGBL Courseware as a learning tool. This paper aims to identify slow learners' difficulties in Mathematics. The develop a DGBL Courseware incorporating Constructivism principles and Engagement Game-Based Elements by Prensky. The research method focuses on following stages: requirement analysis, design and development, including alpha testing by validation from experts, and beta testing, which is user acceptance test to support the efficiency and effectiveness of the Courseware for further improvement.
