Course Description & Objectives
Motivating and engaging individuals for learning new things is often essential for organizations that strive for growth. Gamification provides a useful mechanism in this regard and is increasingly being employed across the fields of education, health, public services, business and management. It is the application of game design elements in realworld context to motivate user behaviours. This course provides an opportunity to develop an understanding of gamification, human learning and motivation theories and then apply this knowledge to devise and conduct interventions for improving academic as well as nonacademic outcomes of students particularly those from underserved communities.
