Hello,

I am late! Hope I can at least still lurk in this MOOC that is halfway done. Well better late than never :)

I am an instructional designer at a small college in Alberta (that's in Canada). I am new to ID and to gaming, so I am a real newbie but loving the engagement that can be formed by in learning by both. I spent 8 years teaching in k-12 and took on ID work last year. I am interested in implementing aspects of gamification throughout course design. I am not a game designer, but I don't one has to be to really embrace gamification (hope I am right ;))

Never too late. Ah, hockey night in Canada, go Leafs! You are doing fine. this is such a good place to meet others as well as look back into the MOOC I and MOOC II at all the forums, there is a wealth of information for you to explore. It really comes down to looking at the fact that learning doesn't have to be dull, it doesn't have to be rote, you can have fun while learning. I think it is easier to gamifiy learning in k-12, I think at the college level it takes a little more planning as well as selling to the administration and also keeping adults involved where they are in class for such a short period and don't know each other outside of the class. However, I see so many colleges and educators leading the way and giving us great examples.
