Designing with Gamification: Tips for Creating Fun and Rewarding UX
Date: Thursday, May 15, 2014
Time: Doors open at 5:30 pm; presentation begins at 6:00
Why do games keep people immersed in front of a screen for hours at a time? Ever wonder if your site, app or product could engage users in a similar way? In this session we’ll talk about the basics of gamification and see examples of how this powerful design trend can be applied to your projects to improve productivity, while simultaneously creating a fun and rewarding experience for your users.
