Gamification – Επανασχεδιάζοντας το Μέλλον

Gamification – Επανασχεδιάζοντας το Μέλλον | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

Όπως λοιπόν προείπα, το Gamification είναι ένα νέο επιστημονικό πεδίο και όπως καθετί νέο θα πρέπει να το ορίσουμε ώστε να γίνει κατανοητό. Με τον όρο αυτόν αναφερόμαστε στη χρήση/ενσωμάτωση διαφόρων μηχανισμών/χαρακτηριστικών παιχνιδιού σε καταστάσεις/δραστηριότητες που δεν σχετίζονται με το παιχνίδι με στόχο την εξεύρεση λύσεων μέσω της αλλαγής συμπεριφοράς των χρηστών καθώς και της αύξησης της συμμετοχικότητας και της δέσμευσής τους.

Edwin McRae:  "There’s a recurring design flaw in games that really bugs me.  Non player characters that I meet, start to get to know, and never see again.  They’re a storytelling one night stand!"

Independent magazines going digital | Feature | Computer Arts magazine | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

The ongoing success of the iPad is creating amazing opportunities for independent mags. We speak to four small publishers making the most of it.“I already had a MacBook, Apple’s development tools were free to download and the developer’s fee was only $99 a year, so I wasn’t taking much risk to explore, plus I had a ton of free time to take up the challenge,” says Moore. “As soon as I got some apps in the Store, I realised I could sell them for a few dollars and make almost the same kinds of profits, if not more, from the apps. I didn’t have to worry about distribution because it was in the App Store. All I had to do was promote a link.”

Your question in NO WAY relates to the content of this article so I can only assume that you are self promoting...BADLY, which means your link is spam. I think if you seriously want to promote your blog, you shouldn't add the link to your blog with dumb questions. No one will take you seriously. This is a cheap, unprofessional move. Please stop!

"There’s a huge underserved population today who are consuming content on their phones and we’re giving them a crappy experience. We’re telling them, “Here’s how the web works for you: You have to pinch and zoom your way through sites that were designed for a much larger monitor, you’re going to get errors and the fonts are going to be really tiny.”

3 Things to Consider When Designing for Mobile Support | Social Media Today

3 Things to Consider When Designing for Mobile Support | Social Media Today | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

Customer support can be a competitive edge - but there are tradeoffs.  A customer in distress likes nothing more than to talk to a real person who can quickly solve their problem.   You’ll see this also in the majority of mobile apps by ecommerce companies - the support channel for most apps is voice, email, or some combination. While all support channels (voice, email and chat) are staffed by a real person, voice feels the most real, because as a customer, you are connected to the problem solver in real time.  The trade-off is that voice doesn’t scale - every team member can only handle one phone call at a time, so, as your volumes rise, you either

a. have to increase staff, or

b. keep your customers waiting.

This article is worth reading and customer care is an issue that needs to be addressed here in Greece!
