Integration of Gamification into Course Design: A Noble Endeavor with Potential Pitfalls
Moore-Russo, Deborah; Wiss, Andrew; Grabowski, Jeremiah
College Teaching, v66 n1 p3-5 2018
In this article, we provide a commentary on the current state of gamification in higher education by reviewing the research literature, noting a lack of research focused on the design of gamified postsecondary courses. To address this issue, we discuss four potential pitfalls instructors may encounter when designing gamified learning activities. We conclude with suggestions related to how instructors can avoid these common stumbling blocks.
