Gamification is an increasingly popular strategy for increasing user engagement. But how to design gamified systems? While there is an abundance of industry methods, they often remain elusive in essential steps and lack grounding in evidence. This course provides a hands-on introduction into a comprehensive, research-based method for designing gamified systems, the intrinsic skill atoms approach. The method has been successfully used in over 20 industry projects and validated in its effectiveness. In two 80 minute blocks, participants will learn the central challenges of gameful design and how to do it in practice, working through the method with a practical case study.
