Abstract
Gaming tools are effective teaching aids to supplement conventional teaching techniques, and a flexible game environment have been developed in the literature. Based on the marketing game, a confirmatory experiment is designed to test the Nash equilibrium of prisoners’ dilemma game. In order to integrate more knowledge within one experiment and improve teaching effectiveness, the confirmatory experiment is transformed into a comprehensive one by repeating the marketing game 30 times. In the first round only 3 pairs of students play (advertising, advertising), which is the Nash equilibrium of the one-shot game. The result suggests that it is not a good way to design comprehensive experiments by integrating different game scenarios into one experiment. Alternatively, problem-based learning with multiple-disciplined methods can be employed to construct effective comprehensive experiments.
