Gamification Feedback, Rules, and Loops show art Gamification Feedback, Rules, and Loops

The Gamification Quest

Gamification designs for learning should use the full potential of feedback rules and feedback loops. Feedback is key in game design not just to direct behavior, but also to give discernable cues to the players on their performance and aspects to improve. A good gamification design knows to nudge behavior, but great gamification design creates meaningful learning cycles that use multiple feedback rules. These feedback systems can create loops that accrue and relate to meaningful rewards or game outcomes.

What can the grotesque, monstrous, and even alien creatures found lurking in an extraordinary range of literature across many centuries reveal about the different ways humans have imagined what it means to be human?

This online, full semester literature course was designed in collaboration by artist Matt Rockman, and Sententia Gamification Journeymen Certified Brown University Professor of English Jim Egan and Instructional Designer Naomi Pariseault.

Join us to explore this gamification case study and hear from the creators about their design. They will share insights and answer questions about their highly successful gamified undergraduate course at Brown University titled “Fantastic Places, Unhuman Humans.”

You will lean how this talented trio mastered techniques to the challenges of:

  • How can you immerse someone into an online gamified experience higher-ed course?
  • What was your design process and considerations?
  • What game mechanics did you choose and why?
  • How did you make your many user experience/user interface design decisions?

Originally created for Brown University students and, later, for Edx, this course will inspire people to experiment with gamification in learning environments that remain relatively untouched by gamification
