GALOAP is a web framework for developing games with a purpose (or GWAP). A GWAP is a game played on a computer that serves some purpose for the people setting up the game by harnessing human abilities in an entertaining setting. A GWAP gives indirect incentives, like wikipedia:
  • Reciprocity (altruistic contributes receive a benefit return);
  • Community (partecipants have a sense of common);
  • Reputation (partecipants are respected, trusted and appreciated each other);
  • Autonomy (partecipants take freedom decision).
There are many GWAPs available on the web such as, Phrase Detectives, OntoGame. Our project focuses on providing a platform for developing different GWAPs with these design principles:
  1. Fun and intellectual challenge
  2. Consensus decision for corrects answers
  3. Massive content generation
