What do game designers know about fun that we don’t?


Chairman and CEO, Allen Interactions
Webinar Recording Details


In Part 1 we covered:
  • Research on learning, including 11 corresponding principles for instruction
  • The rising impact of a continuum of approaches from presentations, extrinsic games, gamification, adaptive tutorials, and serious learning games
  • We analyzed the framework of Jeopardy as an example of a popular extrinsic game that is weak for instructional purposes
  • We applied concepts of learning research to the Jeopardy framework and increased both the fun and the instructional impact

In Part 2 we will study more techniques for making games both engaging as well as efficient learning experiences. We will look at:
  • CCAF: the basic components of both powerful elearning and fun games
  • The critical role rules have to play in making games fun
  • The four types of rules
  • Converting instructional content into rules
  • Some serious learning game examples
