Implementing Game Elements into Didactic Process: A Case Study

  title={Implementing Game Elements into Didactic Process: A Case Study},
  author={Magdalena Borys and Maciej Laskowski},
  journal={Research Papers in Economics},
This article discusses the impact of implementing the gaming elements such as points and leader boards into the learning process on the technical university. The pros and cons of the discussed solution are presented. The discussion is supported by results of the case study: students were divided into two groups. The study path of the first group was enriched with gaming elements, while the other was taught using the traditional didactic methods. After the whole semester the results of both…

This research analyzes the effectiveness of gamified learning methods compared to traditional learning methods for teaching computer programming by conducting a study where students are taught computer programming using both teaching methods.
Climbing up the leaderboard: an empirical study of applying Gamification techniques to a computer programming class
The presented quasi-experimental study used a combination of instructor feedback, real time sequence of scored quizzes, and live coding to deliver a fully interactive learning experience which proved that the gamified approach was motivating and enriching for both students and instructors.
Implications of Gamification and Virtual Reality in Higher Education

Gamification and Gen Z in Higher Education: A Systematic Review of Literature
Research has found that the new age learner, Gen Z, is different from his/her predecessors, and hence, educators need new age pedagogical interventions to cater to this group of learners. With a
From hiscore to high marks: Empirical study of teaching programming through gamification
The empirical evidence presented in this paper suggests that a gamified, multi-dimensional, problem-based learning approach may yield improved outcomes even when applied to a very complex and traditionally dry task like the teaching of computer programming.

This paper proposes to build a game layer on top of traditional continuous integration technologies to increase student engagement in development, documentation, bug reporting, and test coverage and presents some early results showing feasability.
From game design elements to gamefulness: defining "gamification"
A definition of "gamification" is proposed as the use of game design elements in non-game contexts and it is suggested that "gamified" applications provide insight into novel, gameful phenomena complementary to playful phenomena.
