This book describes how teachers can use Gamification design in their course development with the Moodle learning management system to build learner resilience and motivation.
Gamification is a design process that reframes goals to be more appealing and achievable using the principles of game design. The goal of this process is to keep learners engaged and motivated in a way that is not always present in traditional courses. When implemented through elegant solutions, learners may be unaware of the subtle game elements being used. A Gamification strategy can be considered successful if learners are more engaged and feel challenged and confident to keep progressing, which has implications for the way teachers consider their course evaluation processes. It is important to note that Gamification in education is more about how the person feels at certain points in their learning journey than about the end product, which may or may not, look like a game.
At Moojoo, we research, explore, and promote the latest educational technologies to support education. This includes:
Games and play are a natural way for humans to learn. Gamification is defined as, “the process of making activities more game-like". The goal of gamification in education is higher engagement and higher levels of retention and completion. Designing a quality educational game requires skill and a high investment of time. On the other hand, simple effective ideas from games can be included in learning design.
