Gamification for a Funtastic User Experience

A session at WordCamp Philly 2011

Saturday 5th November, 2011

2:15pm to 3:15pm (EST)

How do you motivate users to contributions to a blog? Gamification applies the best concepts from games to the design of user experience: challenge, achievement and reward. Points, badges, levels, achievements, and leader boards can all dramatically alter users behaviors. Come hear how we are using the Achievements plugin along with the promise (and pitfalls!) of gamification. Note: attendance of the entire session is required to earn a Gamification Experience badge.
