Creativini: an augmented reality card game to promote the learning of the reasoning process of a technical management route for making wine 


Context and purpose of the study – Nowadays, the entire viticultural and enological process is wisely thought out according to the style of wine to be produced and the local climatic conditions. Acquiring the approach of a technical management route specific for wine production remains a complex learning process for students. To enhance such learning, The Ecole d’Ingénieurs de PURPAN  (PURPAN), an engineering school located in Toulouse southwest France, has recently developed Creativini, a collaborative card game in English made of 150 cards spread into 14 batches. Students in groups of 3 to 6 must design a technical production route, from plant material to bottling. The game is played in ascending order of batch number with the three first batches (wine style, climate and production system) and the last one (hazard) being drawn. Based on previous research, augmented reality (AR) contents were included in the game to promote the commitment, the motivation of students in this learning, and to favor the anchoring of knowledge by offering a strong experience. The objective of this work was to investigate the added value brought by AR.

Material and methods – Thirty-six 20 years old students from PURPAN were divided into 6 groups of 6 students to play a game in March 2022. Half of them were allowed to get access to the AR content (AR group), while the other half was not. For these latter groups, the AR content was replaced by some text to read (without AR group). The knowledge of the students was assessed through a quiz composed of 20 questions using a learning management system (LMS) before to start and at the end of the game. At the end of the game, another questionnaire was also used to evaluate how the educational medium was perceived, and the emotions felt by the students during the game. Knowledge scores were treated through a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) treatment to assess the impact of AR.

Results – The questionnaire revealed that both groups enjoyed the game and were satisfied by the session which confirms the relevance of the medium. Those from the AR group experienced more positive emotions (pleasure/hope) than those from the group without AR who felt more stress and boredom. A significant difference was observed for the knowledge score between the two groups at the beginning of the game (5.1/20 with AR ; 8.1/20 without AR) highlighting an initial heterogeneity in student composition. However, at the end of the game, no significant difference was observed between the two treatments (9.5/20 with AR; 10.8/20 without AR) indicating that AR students managed to catch up. It remains unclear if this benefit is due to the AR content or to a lesser commitment of the students who played without AR and exhibited an initial higher level of expertise in viticulture and enology.

Physiological and growth reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt to row orientation and soil water status

Advanced knowledge on grapevine row orientation is required to improve establishment, management and outcomes of vineyards on terroirs with different environmental conditions (climate, soil, topography) and in view of a future change to more extreme climatic conditions. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of row orientation, plant water status and ripeness level on the physiological and viticultural reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt.

Effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California

San Joaquin Valley accounts for 40% of wine grape acreage and produces 70% of wine grape in California. Fruit quality is one of most important factors which impact the economical sustainability of farming wine grapes in this region. Due to the recent drought and expected labor cost increase, the wine industry is thrilled to understand how to improve fruit quality while maintaining the yield with less water and labor input. The present study aims to study the interactive effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on yield and berry compositions of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California.

The effects of cane girdling on berry texture properties and the concentration of some aroma compounds in three table grape cultivars

The marketability of the table grapes is highly influenced by the consumer demand; therefore the market value of the table grapes is mainly characterized by its berry size, colour, taste and texture. Girdling could cause accumulation of several components in plants above the ringing of the phloem including clusters and resulting improved maturity. The aim of the experiments was to examine the effect of girdling on berry texture characteristics and aroma concentration.

Application of a fluorescence-based method to evaluate the ripening process and quality of Pinot Blanc grape

The chemical composition of grape berries at harvest is one of the most important factors that should be considered to produce high quality wines. Among the different chemical classes which characterize the grape juice, the polyphenolic compound, such as flavonoids, contribute to the final taste and color of wines. Recently, an innovative non-destructive method, based on chlorophyll fluorescence, was developed to estimate the phenolic maturity of red grape varieties through the evaluation of anthocyanins accumulated in the berry skin. To date, only few data are available about the application of this method on white grape varieties.

Different yield regulation strategies in semi-minimal-pruned hedge (SMPH) and impact on bunch architecture

Yields in the novel viticulture training system Semi-Minimal-Pruned Hedge (SMPH) are generally higher compared to the traditional Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP). Excessive yields have a negative impact on the vine and wine quality, which can result in substantial losses in yield in subsequent vintages (alternate bearing) or penalties in fruit quality. Therefore yield regulation is essential. The bunch architecture in SMPH differs from VSP. Generally there is a higher amount but smaller bunches with lower single berry weights in SMPH compared to VSP.
