Gamification and Open Badges in Moodle

Content Type: Ask a Moodler

Target Audience: Teacher / Course Creator 

Language: English

Description of Presentation

Gamification design is achieving outstanding success globally. Watch this demonstration of some basic Moodle skills to get you started down this road, well up and down. The fun is in the risk, choice, surprise and challenge. Are you game? Once you have mastered a few basics then step up to the challenge of creating a learning journey using Campbell's Mythological 'Hero's Journey' and Tolkien's classic 'Hobbit' as an example. The presentation will briefly explain how the techniques used by Game Designers have been independently validated  by research from Psychology, Theatre Studies, Neuroscience and Mathematics.

Moodle is the ideal gamification platform. You could use a 'pre-assembled' software that offers points for a certain sequence of activities. This system may have shorter learning curve and be easier to set up than a blank 'DIY' Moodle Course. However, like any software wizard, you will become frustrated when you are locked in where changes you require can't be made or can only be made site-wide (admin) rather than at a course (teacher)  level. It's like the difference between a fast food simple menu or a home cooked meal with fresh ingredients selected from the local markets. There is a time and place for rapid development tools but this presentation will convince you that learning to 'cook' with Moodle will be well worth your investment in time for the versatility available to you.
