A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Game+Badge Program, "Who's Got Class?"
In July, WCET launched "Who's Got Class?", a social game that exposes players to the many facets and programs of the organization, and rewards them for their engagement and contributions. The light-hearted program is designed to provide a first-hand experience of social games and badges for learning. Players are challenged to complete a variety of missions, and earn badges and points as they progress.
While the game is geared toward representatives of WCET's member institutions, it is open to all interested parties. To date, hundreds of players from scores of institutions have signed up. Because of the game's social nature, players are actively involved in rich discussions about the utility of social games and badges for learning within postsecondary education.
"Who's got Class?" will stay live through October 31, 2012. Winners and awards will be announced during WCET's Annual Meeting, October 31-November 3.
Join "Who's Got Class?" program manager, Cali Morrison, WCET, and "Who's Got Class?" designer and gamemaster, Anne Derryberry, to hear about what we're learning through this project. Topics to be discussed include:
- How we approached the game's design.
- The importance of the social experience and maintaining participants' interest.
- Participant experiences and 'a-ha moments.'
Anne Derryberry is the designer/producer of game-based and social media-supported learning and communications systems and an industry analyst with Sage Road solutions, LLC.
