Gamification for Social Good – and How to Use it in MOOC’s

The use of Gamification and Serious Games in Development Cooperation is increasing. But what are the differences and what are the overlapping points? How can you improve the digital learning experience of your user? In this presentation we will talk about a Serious Game, a failed gamified MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) and a gamified MOOC that succeeded. What then does the future of Gamification in Development Cooperation look like?

Panel Discussion: Fraggles vs Doozers, Play or Make, who has it right?

​We’ll hear from gamification designers and the companies who need the designs. Where are we at concerning the needs and wants of each other? Do companies prefer with one holistic supplier or can they benefit from a few specialists?
