Guerra-Martinez and Noffs - Discussion Hero

The Gamification Quest

Release Date: 01/19/2019

Discussion Hero is a gamified discussion board where students become heroes and villains in a tough, yet still respectful, battle of ideas. This puts the debate aspect of discussions boards front and center by giving students an understanding of what is expected of them in a creative and entertaining way.
