Young generation do not prefer to continue their carrier in engineering and technical areas. This is becoming a serious problem of these fields. On the other hand, computer and video games become one of the most popular activities for leisure times of young people in the world. Usually people willingly spent time on these activities. This paper proposed a game based approach for teaching concepts that is not easy to visualize and understand for the learners such as logic-gates concept thought in the undergraduate education of the computer science and electrical and engineering. Accordingly a multi-user web-based computer game is developed for this purpose. This study investigates students’ motivation on learning logic gates concept through this multi-user game. The results of this study is encouraging the educators to use computer games as supportive tools in their educational environments to improve the students’ motivation on the learning concept, to improve their visualization in some concepts and to encourage them practice different perspectives of the phenomena.
