Beta Spaces—Rapidly Prototyping a Gamified Solution

Wednesday, May 12, 2021
Games and Gamification

Gamification has been a tool in many design toolboxes for a number of years, but there’s still quite a barrier to entry for many instructional designers and learning professionals. Do you get the idea but don’t know where or how to start? Have you gotten excited seeing some examples but thought you couldn’t do that? Do you want to expand your options and ability to engage people and help them get results? If so, join us for a playful challenge that will give you a chance to meet new friends, collaborate, compete for bragging rights and a few prizes, and leave you with the tools to get started gamifying your next learning experience.

In this session, you’ll learn how to gamify a learning experience by going through a gamified learning experience. You’ll use a proven framework called The GAME (Goals, Audience, Mechanics, and Experience) Plan to determine what you’re trying to achieve and who you’re designing for, which will then influence how to put it all together to create the right experience. Working in groups, you’ll complete a series of quick breakout activities that will help you rapidly prototype a solution to a real-world training challenge. By the end of this experience, you’ll know how to do more with gamification than you thought you could and have a simple framework you can follow along the way.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How The GAME Plan framework can help you design effective and engaging learning experiences
  • How to create a learner persona so you can focus designs on people and not just content
  • How rapidly prototyping can help you overcome blocks to using gamification and open creative possibilities in your designs
  • How to decide which gameful elements will best suit the needs of the learners you are designing for
