Introduction
I focus on the pedagogical use of serious games in corporations and business. I aim to identify and validate the methods for linking the intentionality of the designer to the learner metacognition. My approach connects together the serious game and the approach of documentary filmmaking. This approach is inspired by the semiopragmatic and supplemented by cognitive narratology, both as a vehicle of knowledge and as a method for the assessment of their acquisition.

Parmi les transgressions narratives, la métalepse s’est déployée sur tous les médias, jusqu’à occuper une place prépondérante dans les récits vidéoludiques.

The answer may come from Michel Butor, theorist and novelist, who has enclosed in 1957 in a novel multiple literary processes that illuminate today issues related to virtual reality. Our research first adopts a phenomenological appro...

La possibilité d'incarner un personnage serait-elle l'apanage de la réalité virtuelle ou l'héritage d'expérimentations pré-électroniques ? La réponse tient peut-être à Michel Butor, théoricien et romancier, qui a enfermé en 1957 en un roman de multiples procédés littéraires qui éclairent des problématiques soulevées aujourd'hui par la réalité virtu...
