Summary The poor time-management skills of Hong Kong students have raised many problems in learning. For example, university students need efficient and effective ways of planning their work schedules to meet deadlines. To address this issue, we are developing an educational game to help students better understand the importance of efficient time management. Through the use of this software, they will be able to develop proficient methods of time management. Essential parameters in time management are embodied as different entities and attributes in the game. The effectiveness and usefulness of our game will be assessed by a set of surveys. Surveys will be carried out before and after using the software. Improvements to the student’s time-management skills will be observed and the results will be analyzed for future reference.
