Excellent course! I found it very useful. It really builds a super strong foundation to think about this User Motivation and UX. The word Gamification is something that some people like and some hate.
Very structured and interesting class about gamification. Kevin is a very engaging teacher and this course was perfect introduction to gamification. I highly recommend the course. Thank you very much!

I really appreciated the assignment tasks and the interviews, the material itself was ok as well, although was not intensive enough for me. I really missed nice, structured and illustrated transcripts of lessons, such kind of written material could be useful for a reader-type learner as me.

Thorough and well structured. It's a bit dated and could benefit by updating some of the examples, but it has many interesting examples from where to see practical applications of what is taught. The interviews are also valuable although they could be recommended as side material.

This was a great course!
The only draw back that I have is that at the end of each video I would have liked a short (less than 1 minute) summary of the ideas discussed in that video. Just a few bullets with the main ideas presented in order to memorize them better.
The course uses traditional methods of reports and lecture, making the course not as innovative as it should. Gamification should be more involved in its approach and showing more in-depth tools for the users to apply the gamification tools that is so widely used.

I really enjoyed the course, and learned a lot from it.
Lessons are clearly explained and I believe the course covers a lot of the key concepts to enter the world of gamification.
I would have appreciate more contact with the professor through the discussion boards.

It's a very good course. Truly recommend to everyone related to marketing and business development.
4 stars for one reasons - some cases (most actually) are already out-dated. I think that renewing this program, making it more 2017 - would help it greatly.

I enjoyed this course, the instructor, and believe the course content met all of the objectives presented at the beginning. I do think this would be a more impactful course if it was recreated now, as a lot has changed in gamification in the last 7 years.

Creo que es un curso que te da un panorama y sustento de la ludificación, se utilizan buenos ejemplos y las tareas son pertinentes. Sin embargo, por motivos de que mi inglés no es bueno y que algunos de los videos no están subtitulados en español.

The material in quite important for me at the moment, and I feel like the course itself is pretty good. The main place to improve for my point of view will be add some information regarding how to apply frameworks course provide in a best way.

A good and thorough analysis of the aspects of gamification
(+) Professor talked a lot about psychology, motivation
(-) I missed an example of how to make a gamified system from scratch instead than looking at examples from webpages.

Seeing we had a gamification course, we could have a better "gamified" course itself! I was really hoping (and even making a list) with all the stuff the professor had in it's video.
The course is very good, tho.
I like it! It is clear, love the examples, and the interviews.
*Perhaps the only thing I'd add it more highlighting in items to keep in mind at the end of the lectures: Like a summary... That's usually helpful.*
I've found the professor extremely engaging and it has made a real difference to way I approach motivation with young people in the care environment. Definitely worth a look if you are working in this field.
por Kathy L G•
Lots of good information. My only complaint was that it was specifically geared to business and I was trying to apply it to education. (there was also very little gamification done to the actual course)
por Dennis G•
Great primer course for anybody who wants to get started in the field of gamification. Techniques and information that are offered can be used straight away. It's a practical approach to the topic.
por César C•
The course is excelent, have the foundation of the topic but it's a little bit old. There are some new information that should be included, specifically in the gamification design frameworks.
por Gregor S•
I found the course very interesting but I think it could be cut in half by rather focusing on real life examples and applying only a subset of the theories discussed. Overalls good course.
por Jorg v G•
Engaging teacher, good examples, wide point of view on the topic. Also the criticism and future of Gamification is addressed which makes the learner think about other perspectives as well.
por Ugochukwu C•
It was a very wonderful theoretical and slightly practical analysis of gamification. I want to thank the instructor and everyone who had a hand in creating this online course. Thank you
por Derek C•
Just finished my first week and cannot tell enough how much my brain absorbed from the subject. Professor Werbach is a great teacher and a passionate for the subject.
por Audree L•
Great teacher, content is interesting and well presented. The homeworks are increasingly difficult, but are a good way to practice what you learned.
por Bryn D•
Excellent, informative and fun. Great course for this with an interest in gamification and wish to expand their knowledge, expertise and ideas.
por Alexandre P R T•
Great content. Having the possiblity of exchanging information on site with the possibility of developing group work would have been great.
por Enrico S•
I really like this course. It is full of practical exams and talks about the pros and cons. The professor is also very good at explaining.
por Yury C•
Quite a handy course to get the understanding of the concept of Gamification. Well paced to do it in parallel with whatever job you have.
