Learn, Play, and Teach (LPT): A Multifaceted Approach to Anti-Phishing Education
Abstract: The increased frequency of fraud, theft, and security incidents online is a major cause for user concern as this threatens their confidence in the online space. Phishing has emerged as a significant threat and a pressing concern for users and institutions. Being knowledgeable about and aware of phishing emails can help users avoid falling victim to phishing attacks. This paper introduces and presents a learning system undergirded by the Learn, Play, and Teach (LPT) model aimed at helping users learn about and identify phishing emails. The LPT model is a three-pronged approach that marries the pedagogical approaches of intelligent tutoring systems, game-based learning, and teachable agents.
