What is this site about?
The goal of this site is simple, to help you become a gamification geek! This site has been made for anyone like yourself who wants to learn more about gamification and motivational design.
Whether you’re just interested in gamification, inspired to change something about the way you or your team works, someone who wants to create more engaging experiences for your students, or if you're a student tasked with learning more about gamification, it doesn't matter. This site is for all of you!
Who made all of this?
Me! Who am I? The name is Zac and I like to think I’m a bit of a gamification geek.
I'm one of the first people in the world with a PhD in gamification design and now I’ve got a whole lot of exciting research and information that is worth sharing.
I see myself primarily as a gamification and user experience researcher, educator and designer. My PhD thesis focused on designing gamification for mobile applications. I also recently developed and taught a Master’s subject on gamification and persuasive computing at the Queensland University of Technology which was a lot of fun! However, I decided to leave the university space and move to industry in order to speak and consult on effective gamification design.
Ah yes, and I run an app development with Jimmy Ti company called Eat More Pixels where we make playful and meaningful apps.
I love chatting about gamification and you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to get in touch with me!
