Gamification Design Challenge

Who wants to suffer through boring, impersonal e-learning courses that aren’t relevant to their professional lives? Most learners don’t like click-next courses that make them feel invisible or fail to address their specific needs. That’s why engagement and motivation are so important.

We invite you to showcase your gamification design. In August we presented two gamification design challenge options for users to challenge themselves and their skills. All levels of expertise are welcome and encouraged to present. 

Option #1

Personalize the e-learning experience: Give learners a voice—Ditch the one-size-fits-all course design model by giving learners more control and options to personalize their learning experiences. (Create a sample one to five slide course)

  • Let users choose an avatar that best represents them
  • Increase learner engagement by using their name throughout the course
  • Create adaptive learning paths that meet the unique needs of each learner (branching)
  • Allow learners to choose closed captioning, audio narration, design themes, and other course preferences
  • Personalize feedback based on quiz scores and on-slide actions
  • Use gamification techniques to add personalization to courses
Option #2

Gamify an Existing E-Learning Course: Gaming elements, such as rewards, points, discovery, and competition, are excellent ways to engage and motivate learners. But the challenge for most course designers is finding practical ways to apply game mechanics without disrupting their existing course design models.

So, how can e-learning designers get started with gamification? What are some practical ways to gamify e-learning courses?

  • Begin Small and Use Existing Projects - One way to experiment with gamification is by starting small and working with existing projects.
