Eduhub Webinar: Tourney – How to gamify learning with design and technology


How to gamify learning with design and technology? At the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW), we developed a “content-independent gaming platform” as a result of an interdisciplinary strategic initiative: simulated reality. In close collaboration of researchers from FHNW in the schools of business, technics, design, applied psychology and pedagogy, we created a flexible and versatile tool-kit, a learning game platform, that can be customized by teachers and students. It has a visually sophisticated and responsive design, which enables the users and players to access the platform by using any type of device.

During this webinar, we will share our experience and knowledge with the eduhub community in an interactive presentation. We will introduce key concepts on game theory and how we applied them to our project. We will play a level in Tourney and discuss the future milestones for the project.

  • Presenters: Safak Korkut, FHNW
  • Moderator: Nathalie Roth, SWITCH
  • Date: Thursday, June 26, 2014
  • Time: 11h00 – 12h00

In the 1st International Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge (2011) learning analytics has been defined as „the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning and the environments in which it occurs“.

So what can we learn from student data? The answer is given in this article from EdTech Review.

The game industry has already overcome the Hollywood’s most expensive productions. In November 2013, one retail game sold $1 billion worth of copies all around the world in one single day; a number that no Hollywood production ever came closer. While the industry is growing and players are getting more and more addicted, the side effects are also started to come to the surface in various sectors outside of the game world: a trend that many enterprises want to jump in, but most don’t know how to do. This presentation will focus not only on the ideas and applications of gamification, but also will show insights from FHNW’s gamified learning project: Tourney.
