|Abstract||In this paper, we experimentally study a new type of multiplayer mobile game for casual gamers by introducing the concept of online, team-based strategy forming via visual-only in-game communication. The game is deployed to 12 users, formed as three teams (four players per team), in order to study team-based cooperation and competition that they can develop over time and explore new game design concepts. By analyzing both subjective and objective data collected through online logs, questionnaires, and post-game interviews, we find a number of implications and insights that could be used to guide design of similar types of mobile casual games in the future. In addition, how various gaming elements (e.g., ideal number for team-based game play, user interfaces) can be utilized to design better mobile casual games is also discussed.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
