Sure, "learning by playing" does work. This is why lecturers and course designers use "Serious Games" in their programmes.
Yet, approaching "learning" like a game designer has more to offer than only altering learning content to make it more game-like.
This webinar takes a closer look at "structural gamification" – the application of game design thinking in the process of learning itself.
