The paper aims to study the impact of utilizing the learner-centered framework on Game-Based Learning (GBL) on first-year university students. The objectives of the study are 1) Game-based learning can create student learning motivation, 2) Game-based learning can achieve knowledge for the learner.

The game implemented in this study is called Beer Game, which is a web-based role-playing simulation of beer distribution in the supply chain. The sample was 42 students who studied the Introduction to Logistics and Supply Chain Management subject. To measure knowledge level, the samples got the tests before and after playing the game (Pre-test and Post-test). To evaluate the learner motivation level, the study used satisfaction questionnaires.

The result of the level of knowledge of samples showed that 95.12 percent of total sample students got a better score, on the Post-test than on the Pre-test. The learner motivation survey showed the average (x ̅) was 4.62/5.00 meaning it was very satisfied with game-based learning. In conclusion, Game-Based Learning (GBL) can create learning motivation and knowledge for first-year undergraduate students.
