Instead of adding games to the classroom. In the book The Multiplayer Classroom: Designing Coursework as a Game Lee Sheldon suggests building the whole course as a game. From a review of the book it resonates with me. Has anyone here read the book? What are your thoughts?

My classroom is a game, I have the grades and they try to get them. (OK I've been on line too long, getting punchy. . . ;)

I've been trying to find Sheldon's book. In his video, he says there is an e-reader version but I haven't found it. If I can't get it digitally, I will break down and buy the paper, but I prefer my device books cause I'm less likely to lose those.

I got there via worldcat.org If you have access to some institutional access there are some other options there.

If my class is a game, we will not be able to focus on learning
