Hi everyone. Thought you might find this guide to Game-based Learning Design I've written useful. It features lots of great examples of game-based learning in action, in both the education and corporate sectors. http://www.brightwave.co.uk/practical-guides/game-based-learning-design

Any feedback on the guide and links to other great examples of game-based learning would be much appreciated! Thanks, Alex

This guide covers:

*Reasons for using game-based learning
*Story, characters and goals
*Virtual role-play
*Avatars and reward systems
*Leaderboards, competition and team games
*Exploring virtual environments
*Mobile games
*Take-a-break games

Alexjr,

What an AWESOME resource! I just spent 10 very enjoyable minutes parsing through all of the guide provided.

I think the things I appreciated the most about the guide were the practical examples given, and the fact that they included links. This makes for some awesome further exploration!

In fact, I think this guide would be interesting to visit for each of the weeks in the MOOC to see how the content in it can be related to the MOOC.

I loved some of the British-isms in it, too: "Your media-savvy audience will spot a naff attempt to sex up something dull a mile off." Naff?? LOL!

Ialready checked out the site, didn't you mention it in the journal? I bet that blog of yours outside of the mooc will be incontention for one of the badges. I also diigo and tweeted about your work. Do check out our Diigo site and you might want to sit in the tweetchat on Wednesday, if the time works for you.

I agree with LeeDale, but the British-isms had me hunting for a dictionary, talk about a focal vocabulary. I will go to your site often. I am going to download the guide, busy tomorrow and wednesday, going to see a presidential candidate speak - as they say in the US "I'll get back to you." ;)

Reading now, and will get back to you with some questions. ;)

Guide is already looking "intense" to me.
