Abstract

The main purpose of the present paper was to design and develop a web portal that would store intelligent educational games aiming to eliminate cognitive shortcomings in elementary and secondary school pupils. The design of the portal was based on a previously implemented project that was aiming to find out the differences in cognitive levels among elementary and secondary school pupils in five selected subjects. The tests were carried out on a sample of pupils in the border region between Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The evaluation of these tests revealed specific shortcomings in specific cases. On this basis, we decided to create so-called serious games. For the purpose of storing these games it was necessary to create a portal that would contain them.
