In recent years, educational technology (EdTech) has made significant strides in transforming the way students learn and engage with educational content. One notable example is Odeum's groundbreaking 3D open-world game, "Hua Mulan: A Chinese Learning Adventure," which combines immersive storytelling with experiential learning to teach the Chinese language and culture. To create such games, Odeum developed Odeum Studio, an authoring tool that enables educational game designers to rapidly build 3D open-world games aligned with specific learning objectives. The tool works by serializing the game into a JSON string that is loaded into the game client on the learner's computer. Imagine the potential impact on game development speed and quality if artificial intelligence (AI) could be integrated into the process, assisting with story creation, crafting quests, and generating dialogues for non-player characters (NPCs). In this blog post, we will explore how AI can revolutionize the creation of 3D open-world games like Odeum's Hua Mulan and unlock new possibilities in the world of EdTech.
