Title

Overcoming learning curves through interactive media

Abstract

DOTKey is a fast and efficient alternative to traditional qwerty typing for touch surfaces. As with any new typing system, it has a learning curve. To motivate users through the learning process we developed a mobile game that teaches our system in an engaging way. Games have intrinsic motivation, by coupling simple but essential game mechanics with DOTKey we can motivate users to practice and become proficient with DOTKey.
