In the past few years, many new development toolkits such as the Nebula2 and/or mobile technologies including the WiFi or mobileTV have opened up exciting learning opportunities on mobile devices. On top of it, new technologies continue to fuel the rapid growth of newly merged fields of research like the edutainment for educational entertainment. In a recent teaching development project, we have developed an interactive game platform to facilitate learning and more importantly the spirit of teamwork for collaborative problem-solving on desktop and pocket PCs. With the great challenges imposed by globalization, we strongly believe that learning to collaboratively analyze and then apply the ldquoappropriaterdquo knowledge to solve a specific problem is always the key to success. In this paper, we discuss about an on-going work, and share our relevant experience in system development. Furthermore, evaluation strategies will be thoroughly examined. After all, our work shed light on many interesting directions for future exploration.
