Abstract: Active video games (AVGs) capable of inducing physical activity (PA) offer an innovative approach to combating childhood obesity. Unfortunately, children’s motivation to play AVGs decreases quickly, underscoring the need to identify novel methods of maintaining player engagement. The immersive properties of narratives may be an important mechanism for motivating continued game play, but their role in AVG play has not been explored. A feasibility study was conducted to explore the motivational effect of adding a narrative cutscene to an originally non-narrative AVG. Children in the narrative group had significantly more steps during play in terms of average number of steps per 10s period and in total across the entire play period when compared with the non-narrative group. These results provide preliminary evidence of increased engagement with AVGs with narratives.

Abstract: This study explores why people participate in health-related Internet activities and what potential impacts are of using such activities. Specifically, this study examines how trusts in health information (i.e., from physician and from the Internet) determine individuals’ use of online health-related activities. The study further examines how the use of such online activities improves patient-provider relationships such as discussing online health information with doctors, and satisfaction with healthcare. Utilizing a web-based survey in South Korea, the findings indicated that trust in health information from doctors was negatively related to communication activities, while trust in online health information was positively related to both communication and information activities. In addition, both communication and information activities were positively associated with discussion about online health information with doctors. Further, discussion with doctors about online health information was positively related to satisfaction with healthcare.
