Abstract

Information literacy is an essential skill in today’s society and information search is an essential part of it. These skills need constant training and maintenance and thus, innovative and engaging approaches to teach and learn information literacy and searching are needed. In this paper, we present a serious game to enhance information literacy skills, focusing on skills in seeking information. The experimental research setting widely used in search engine development provides means to gamify information seeking.
