TED video on Gamification

At the beginning of the video he just rambles on about stuff that isn’t very interesting. She goes on to very briefly describing what ramification is. Gamification is the application of game dynamics to non-gaming environments e.g. FarmVille. Gamification creates a pathway for the user to feel more engaged with product. If we take the example of FarmVille again, people playing FarmVille on Facebook receive points and rewards which contribute to their overall achievements and total score. This gives the player satisfaction and also creates competition between other players.

The video was alright but it could’ve been a lot more informative and explain gamification in a lot more detail.
