What you will learn;

Course outline:

1. The theory behind gamification

Gamification is about understanding why certain game mechanics are so engaging and fun and how to choose which game techniques we should be using in any given situation.

2. Practical areas in applying gamification

People respond positively to loyalty, reputation, reward and status and by introducing some game concepts we recognise these influences and can use them to drive engagement.

3. Game mechanics for your gamification toolkit

Learning what elements work in games, how they are used and which are most relevant and effective for gamification.

4. Player types – understanding employee motivations

Understand how to profile & segment employee groups into different player types to choose the right gamification techniques to use with them.
