Description

Learning citation and style guidelines can be difficult for many students. For most of them, it’s just plain boring! Questbased learning, a type of gamified instruction, is one tool to both increase students’ interest and provide instant feedback regarding their progress. As students level up through different quests, they apply the skills they’ve learned while earning experience points, badges, achievements, and rewards. And by using Open Badges, students can display their badges anywhere online: Facebook, LinkedIn, a campus learning management system, online resume, etc. The badges also communicate competency levels to other faculty and instructors. While the examples will come from the 3D Game Lab platform, the concepts and strategies are applicable to other content management systems, such as Google Forms, LibGuides, and learning management systems.
