This unit enables students to explore and experience the application of game design elements in various non-gaming contexts. An increasingly important feature of how practitioners in a wide range of industries engage with their stakeholders, gamification will be critically examined in a number of different settings. Students will create online content individually and collaboratively, and actively interact with their peers across different digital platforms. In doing so, students expand and enhance their portfolios and build a strategic and dynamic online presence.
