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.

The art history survey course has been recognized as problematic with regard to its lack of innovation and adaptation to educational trends and the evolving landscape of college-level learners. 

While Yavelberg’s recent dissertation provided broad insight into the faculty perceptions of the course and its outcomes, there has been little effort to gain a researched perception of the course by students.
 
The researches wanted to know:  what type of game will students create that satisfies student desires for engagement and instructor demands for improved learning outcomes? What insight will this process provide us about our students in the art history survey class?
 
The study did allow great insight into student perceptions and the challenges of educational game design for individuals who have experience with traditional games.
