Why gamification works [Part 1]

Gamification

I’ve started a bit of series on the “why” of good digital learning; we’ve explored why VBL (Video Based Learning) works, and last week I pulled out a few examples of good and bad infographics, to understand why the good work, and the bad fail.

Gamification

For students to be engaged and motivated during an online course, e-learning professionals had to find creative solutions. One that stirred the learning waters and generated a lot of buzz in the e-learning arena is gamification – including gaming principles and mechanics in a non-gaming context, aka learning materials.
