Abstract:Information ethics has become more important with the rapid development of information communication technology within the digital society. However, the training and educational resources remained unilateral and scarce, which could not meet the broad needs of information ethical problem-solving. Motivated by the above issues, this study designed and developed a situated serious game as an authentic and autonomous learning environment compounded with ethical model, codes and theories to facilitate proper ethical decision-making. 20 college students majored in library and information science volunteered to join the study. The results showed that participants’ average scores of Information Professional Ethics Test were significantly improved after they played the game (p < .05). In addition to the growth of scores, participants’ satisfaction toward their learning experiences through the game was also high. Based on the preliminary findings of the study, suggestions of information ethical learning and future studies were provided accordingly.
