What is the Gamification of Learning? How can Gamification affect the design and sucess of eLearning Programms?
Nowadays countless activities involve us in a process of collecting points. You may get points for buying regularly from your local coffee shop, your neighborhood supermarket or even by travelling with the same airlines. Those are just a few common examples of gamification in the everyday life for most of us.
