Why gamification and video games?
Gamification is a new and exciting field. It's all about looking at how video game design can be applied to make our products, work or life more motivating.
Games can be incredibly engaging. For example, in the game World of Warcraft, it is estimated that the 11 million registered users have spent over 50 billion hours playing it!
By looking at our products, classrooms, workplaces and life through the lens of video games then we may able to effectively 'change the game' to make them more engaging and motivating.
However, gamification needs to be designed well in order for it to work.
There are many out-of-the-box gamification solutions available, but without fully understanding how gamification works, what your goals are, who you're designing for and how to measure success, then you run the risk of wasting time and money on a product destined to fail.
I've created this course will help you understand what an effective gamification solution looks like.
This course is packed full of video lectures, engaging activities, and useful tools on a range of relevant topics including gamification, motivational psychology and game design. Complete it and you'll be a gamification hero in no time.
