Games are a powerful learning tool if they are used effectively. They provide a platform for learning or testing concepts and skills, practicing skills, or framing a learning experience. You will see two very different real-life cases studies of gamification. Each case had a variety of challenges which led to the final solutions; one of which is a physical game, the other an online game.

Are you curious about gamification?  In this interactive session you will:
  • Discover key attributes of gamification 
  • Learn when to use and when not to use a game 
  • Propose solutions to the challenges in two case studies 
  • Hear how issues were resolved (or not) 
  • See the final products
