Edutainment is the routine of learning through a medium that both educates and entertains using any of various media, such as animation, computer games, courseware, mobile application or still television. The aim of the UTM Edutainment project is to blend teaching and entertainment elements (edutainment) so that a learning session is fun and entertaining. These way students increase their receptiveness and learn more effectively at any level of our educational system.
The Edutainment product will be developed by student to facilitate other students in scholarship. It can be applied either as peer learning strategy, learning aids during class or even self-learning. It will make a newfangled style of determining where scholars can grow their creativity skills. In order to promote students develop the Edutainment materials, this project used competition as the main strategy.
