…Just as there're different types of games from Tic-tac-toe to Halo-type games,…there are different types of gamification.…One type of gamification is called content gamification.…Content gamification is the application of game elements, game mechanics, and…game thinkings to alter the content to make it more gamelike.…Content is made more gamelike by taking common elements of games and…applying them to information or material that needs to be learned or understood.…
Often, elements such as story, challenge, curiosity, mystery and…characters are used to transform the material and give it a more gamelike feel.…So you might add the element of story to a series of math or…algebra problems to place the student in a fantasy context.…Or you might create a mystery that needs to be solved by gathering evidence…throughout a lecture.…Or by finding hidden pieces of information on a website.…The idea is not to create an entire game, but…to strategically add game elements to engage people and motivate action.…

- Exploring games, gamification, and simulations

- Seeing gamification in action
- Capitalizing on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation
