Gamification is the use of game elements in non-game contexts. You can use games for learning. But where should you start? Where should you begin? Can you even use games for online learning? The answer is yes: there are a few elements of games that you can use for an online learning environment. In this webinar, we’ll review four different areas that you can use for your current or future classes, courses, and trainings. This session will cover: Simulations, Inverted Grading, Avatars, and Feedback Loops. Applications and use cases will be discussed.

This session will…

  • Define Gamification
  • Discuss simulations and applications for online teaching and learning
  • Identify the concept of inverted grading and its use for assessment
  • Demonstrate the use of avatars in a teaching context
  • Defining feedback loops and their applications to teaching and learning
