Online Social Gaming Environments

Roughly half of seniors are now online; many of these play games or are interested in internet gaming. Yet, unlike the typical teenage or 20-something gamer, seniors value social interaction during game play as much or more than the game itself. We are therefore building social gaming environments for seniors. We are studying the effect of chat with a partner during the playing of poker on learning, enjoyment, gaming, and social interaction.
