  • Gamification is becoming a widely used technique in an attempt to improve engagement and effectiveness of learning, with virtual rewards (often in the form of badges) frequently forming a core part of this structure. But how do badges actually work? Recent studies in gamification have clearly identified that while we can say this approach works, any analysis of the success stories quickly confirms that context is essential in both the system we gamify and the users that take part.
