Gamification is 'the use of game mechanics in non-game situations' or 'the process of making activities more game-like'. Recent research by Marigo Raftopolous and her analysis of over 200 gamification case studies showed that corporates now see gamification as a catch all word that encompasses not just gamification but also serious games, simulations, game based learning and playful experiences.
Members of this meetup are interested in finding out more about gamification, and about how it is being and can be used in different industries. Industries such as health & fitness, elearning, marketing, human resources to recruitment and more. At each event there will be time for some networking and to find potential partners to work with.
We'll be holding regular meetups on gamifying a different industry or theme each time. Generally we'll have some speakers and perhaps a workshop or interactive session too. We'll certainly try to make the session fun as well as interesting.So, come along and find out more.
