Description

The infographic is titled Gamification in 5 Stages and outlines a step-by-step guide to gamifying courses.

  • Stage one: know your learners. To make sure your gamified course meets your learners’ needs, first analyze their player types.
  • Stage two: select game mechanics. Certain mechanics, like badges and leaderboards, align better with certain player types. Some mechanics appeal to more than one player type.
  • Stage three: design a game plan. Consider how your mechanics will work and how often learners will encounter them. Badges are best used to engage learners who are extrinsically motivated.
  • Stage four: create gamified content. Be creative and put your mechanics to work. Non-player character avatars (NPCs) are a great way to advance your narrative.
  • Stage five: play the game. It takes time and even a little trial and error to create a great gamified experience, but these five simple steps are fundamental guidelines towards which all gamification effort should be built.
