Welcome back to our video series from eLBX 2018! Today we are sharing the video of Dr. Karl Kapp’s presentation. Karl Kapp is an expert in eLearning, games, gamification. He’s a professor and author and all-around great guy. His presentation at eLBX 2018 centered on “thinking like a game designer.”
Some key takeaways from Dr. Kapp’s presentation:
Application before mastery
Games are engaging because they require action right away, versus a course that starts with learning objectives. Action draws in the player (or learner) and encourages them to engage further.
Use testing as a method of learning
Retrieving something from your memory encodes it more deeply.
Create an open loop
Add a sense of mystery and curiosity to keep learners engaged and increase the level of informational complexity.
