Welcome to Mod 7!

This week we're going to explore gaming and the creation of learning objects.  

The learning goals for this week are:

  •  You'll be exploring games, simulations and learning objects
  •   You'll explore models of gaming
  •   You'll write  a critique of a model
  •   You'll design a game or learning object

A couple of years ago, I had the privilege of studying gamification with Prof. Kevin Werbach at the Wharton School of Business by taking his very first MOOC (Massively Open Online Course) on the subject.  He is considered a pioneer in the field.  I learned a great deal and have applied some of the ideas in the courses I've designed at UO. I am featuring him today as a guest speaker in a recorded interview for our class in the video below.  

Here are some additional resources for you to explore this week:
