Gamification About the Course Gamification is the application of digital game design techniques to non-game contexts, such as business, education, and social impact challenges. Video games are the dominant entertainment form of modern times because they powerfully motivate behavior. Game mechanics can be applied outside the immersive environments of games themselves, to create engaging experiences as well as assign rewards and recognition. Over the past few years, gamification adoption has skyrocketed. Game thinking means more than dropping in badges and leaderboards to make an activity fun or addicting. Subtitles forall video lectures available in: English, Russian (provided by Digital October), Turkish (Koc University), and Ukrainian (provided by Bionic University) Course Syllabus The course is divided into 12 units. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Blog Design Graphique Inciate En El Marketing 2.0 - Enrique Burgos García, Marc Cortés Ricart Este libro presenta los nuevos medios, los nuevos soportes, la nueva manera de acercarse y relacionarse con los consumidores. Se trata de un acercamiento práctico, no centrado en la tecnología, sino en las personas y en la mejor forma de utilizar las nuevas herramientas (los blogs, las redes sociales, los nanoblogs, el RSS o los marcadores sociales) para ayudar a las empresas a entender y moverse en estos nuevos entornos. En primer lugar se presenta el concepto de marketing relacional, para continuar detallando qué son, cómo funcionan y cómo se le puede sacar partido a las nuevas herramientas que ofrece Internet. El libro acaba con un Social Media Plan, la guía para la puesta en marcha de un modelo de presencia en la red. Estamos en un momento en que la gente toma posesión de Internet y ésta se convierte en social: los consumidores opinamos, conversamos, nos quejamos o recomendamos.
