Abstract:
Abstract: This paper aims to explore the gender differences regarding the use of narrative educational software in learning English as a foreign language. This is in order to help improve the usability of narrative educational software. For this investigation, two different stages each with particular focus were conducted. In the first stage, a questionnaire was given to students taking into account gender differences to find the kind of story and characters they preferred. Then, narrative educational software based on both the most preferred character and narrative style was developed for the purpose of this study. In the other stage, a questionnaire was distributed to investigate the differences between boys and girls in term of their engagement. The results of this study indicate that the boys and girls had quite different preferences about the kind of characters and the kind of story which affect their engagement in the narrative educational software. Keywords: educational software, Design, Gender differences, narrative.
