Over the past few years I have read a lot about gamification. It seemed like every industry was looking at gamification as a way to increase results and foster a stronger commitment from participants, customers and students. After all video games were extremely addictive for adults and children alike, so why not extract some clues as to why. I have personally used gamification techniques to motivate myself and friends towards achieving goals in health, fitness and education. It is fun earning badges or points on a scoreboard and somehow it creates such a great feeling of accomplishment!
