Abstract—Present era of massive use of the internet has brought us enormous access to information and knowledge, yet has exposed us to such cybersecurity threats as personal information fraudulency and theft. Therefore, to safely and beneficially use cyberspace’s information services, it is necessary and inevitable to raise awareness of cybersecurity. Aiming at building an environment to support cyberspace users in focusing and strengthening such awareness, we think that providing users with self-regulated learning courses about cybersecurity topics will be a practical approach. With that purpose in mind, in this paper, we introduce a framework for developing a gamification-based cybersecurity awareness course on the Moodle learning management system.

Index Terms—Cybersecurity awareness, gamification, learning management system, self-regulated learning
