Gamification and Ludology: Presentation recording

Ivan Lombardi talked about two uses of gamification at the Teaching & Learning Seminar. Firstly at the University of Fukui (Japan) where Fukudai Hero is a video game-like English class for students of Engineering (with low motivation to take compulsory English classes). It aims to strengthen the students’ engagement with the class content (usually a range of topics for basic communication in English) by using core game elements like quests, a point system, and free choice. At Nottingham, the online MA Programme in Digital Technologies for Language Teaching includes a gamified module on Game-based learning.
