What is Gamification? How to Gamify Education?

The next two videos from Extra Credits will answer those questions central to my MSc. Thesis.

Gamification

Gamifying Education

I first met James Portnow (writer of Extra Credits) in SINFO keynote – The Aesthetics of Play

SINFO XIX Keynote – James Portnow – The Aesthetics of Play

Which in turn took me to the MDA framework

MDA: A Formal Approach to Game Design and Game Research by Robin Hunicke, Marc LeBlanc, Robert Zubek

Robin Hunicke, in turn, took me to thatgamecompany’s Journey but you can read about that in my other blog. 🙂

Finally, I’m taking Gamification Course at Coursera by Professor Kevin Werbach of University of Pennsylvania.

My last supervisor meeting was Sep 13, next will be Sep 26.
