Games people play: Online learning from Zoologic
Is gamification an empty buzzword, or is there merit in the theory that adding game-like elements to learning actually improves outcomes? Research suggests that yes, the brain does respond to game rewards the same way it does to food – with pleasure centers lighting up with in-game achievements
Knowing that the brain does respond to game rewards, every instructional designer should consider how best to add gamification to the learning development process. But as always, the devil is in the details. If your idea of gamification is simply to add badges and points to your course, in all likelihood you haven''t really achieved the engagement you were seeking.
