Abstract

Microsoft Kinect is a low cost natural user interface (NUI) device compared to other NUI solutions. Inspired by the Kinect Effect while keeping in mind the lack of educational games for kids on Kinect and lack of physical activities on other platforms, we propose Kinect Academy - a
research project that fills the gap by providing educational application for children which is filled with activities. This project uses Kinect's NUI capabilities to help children learn by letting them have fun while learning. This projects aims to be a tool for educators to teach children while keeping them physically active by being to interact with educational
materials in a new and fun way. Kinect Academy tries to achieve our aim by using Kinect to make learning fun and linking it with an open and collaborative web platform for education.
