AbstractAbstract: The pervasiveness of cell phones among young people has made them an ideal platform to cater educational content informally (anywhere, anytime). Although there are a large number of mobile learning tools, educational games provide an adequate compromise between educational content and games that makes the informal educational exploration more enjoyable and engaging. However, most educational games for cell phones are created by software developers as complex software packages which require software engineering knowledge to be modified or customized as needed. In this paper, we propose a system where games are created by game designers and educational contents by teachers, and both are brought together in a seamless manner. This novel approach facilitates the use of educational games without the need of programming skills and guarantees that teachers can easily create the educational contents that go into the mobile games.
