Abstract

Teaching cognitive subject matter via distance learning often suffers from different aspects, such as providing passive content or missing motivational elements. Therefore, this paper deals with the extension of an online course on theoretical topics by game-based elements and proposes a distance learning method called “Quiz World Cup”. After highlighting problematic aspects of teaching cognitive subject matter and pointing out possible remedies, the realization of the Quiz World Cup within the Moodle platform is described. Consequently, results and experiences of a case study running this method in the area of adult education are summarized.
