The mission in xDelia is to produce knowledge, novel applications and instruments capable of improving financial decision making in three different fields of practice: professional trading, private investment, and personal finance. The project develops and also evaluates the potential of games, game technologies, and medical sensors as components in learning support environments, and as tools to conduct experimental and field research. The choice of these technologies for improving learning outcomes is motivated by recent findings in the expertise and decision making literature. Those are pointing to the importance for competence building of contextual and psychological validity, and of the need for timely and relevant feedback. Games and medical sensors, i.e. ECG, EEG and GSR sensors, allow us to incorporate the characteristic of context validity and feedback into learning support environments. xDelia was an EU project funded through FP7 framework program.
