I keep reading blogs and white papers about the power of gamification. The researcher in me wants ot pin point the draw and see which use has the most impact for retention and learning. From our initial research, I suspect an element of public recognition may be key.

Danny Ong's curator insight, September 23, 2013 10:26 PM

In this article, it is shown how people applies gaming-related concepts into their daily activities. Therefore, if we could apply the same concepts when it comes to businesses, plenty of improvement will be seen among the people. One of the example is Foursquare giving people achievements if they had logged into several places using Foursquare. If this concept is applied to the business people, there might had a chance they are motivated by the rewards that will be given if they done an excellent job.

Ask just about anyone what Transmedia is and you’ll get an empty stare coming back at you as they try to give you their best non answer. Angela, however is a smart cookie that knows her stuff. She not only schooled me on Transmedia – she also gave me the skinny on something called, Alternate Reality Gaming. Oh boy… here we go!


And as a companion piece to this article, I recommend you read A plea for collaborative Transmedia learning by April Arrglington.
