Using Gamification In eLearning
Let’s first understand what gamification is and how it is different from playing games.
In one of my earlier articles on gamification, Top 6 Benefits Of Gamification In eLearning, I had highlighted both these aspects as follows:
- Gamification is about more than just playing games (in fact, sometimes it does not involve playing games at all). It can be defined as the concept of applying game-design thinking to non game applications.
- Wikipedia defines gamification as “the use of game thinking and game mechanics in non-game contexts to engage users in solving problems”.
