Gamification – What it is and its elements

Overcoming obstacles, competing with friends, earning points and medals. You must have already gone through these phases while playing your favourite game and remember how excited you got by changing levels? 🥳

The truth is that games attract and motivate people for a thousand years and have started to be used in different contexts and have been bringing a lot of benefits to organizations and educational institutions. We call this gamification!

➡️ Gamification is a concept that has become quite popular in recent years. It is related to the concept of Game, from which other concepts such as “Game-based learning” and “Serious Games” also emerged. In essence, gamification is learning through games. By understanding the power that games have in increasing motivation, productivity and the power to capture attention, we can use some of these techniques in a non-game reality.

So What is Gamification?

Gamification is the use of game elements and game design techniques in non-game contexts. In this definition, we find 3 determining aspects:

  • Game Elements;
  • Game Design Techniques;
  • The context in which It is used is other than the game itself.
