Gamification Summit to Offer Gamification Design Certificate

August 9, 2011 -

The Gamification Summit announces the world’s first program offering a Gamification Design Certificate. This certificate will be offered at the conference September 15-16 in New York City. Attendees will have the opportunity to jump into interactive workshops featuring new curriculum designed by summit chair and industry expert Gabe Zichermann, in consultation with various industry partners.

"Gamification is delivering unprecedented success in a wide array of industries -- marketing, loyalty, health, education, and the enterprise, to name a few," said Gabe Zichermann, chair of GSummit. "There is an extraordinary shortage of gamification design experts who understand best practices and have the tools necessary to gamify inside their organizations. We believe there will be demand for 10,000 people with gamification expertise worldwide in the next decade, and are thrilled to be first in offering this program."

The program promises to teach the "foundations of gamification, uncover player types and what motivates and engages them, and reveal which game mechanics are most effective." Attendees who sign up for the GSummit workshop with a Workshop Pass will also be invited to review "foundational materials" beforehand, and gain access to the complete 2-day curriculum at GSummit. After that, Zichermann’s advanced workshop will go hands-on, showing the principles and techniques necessary to create engagement with gamification design. On-site presentations, Q&A with industry experts and additional video materials will supplement the workshop.

Big PermI haven't got my notification yet, even though I reserved it the day the pop up came.08/04/2015 - 12:27pm
james_fudgeThanks Matthew. I have not yet installed Windows 10, but the complaints about it have been minimal.08/04/2015 - 12:19pm
benohawkhttp://goo.gl/6yZ7EO suggests you can kill it all, but I haven't tested it on my system as of yet. And I wouldn't recommend digging in the registry or playing around withdisabling services for most users08/04/2015 - 12:18pm
Matthew Wilsonyes you can turn it off08/04/2015 - 12:15pm
james_fudgeCan you completely disable it though? I think you can minimize what it collects.08/04/2015 - 12:06pm
benohawkThe Win 10 data collection sounds scary, but I think it would be just too much data to be useful08/04/2015 - 11:57am
benohawkNo need to apologize Big Perm08/04/2015 - 11:55am
benohawkThe changing to 0 only being a 1 was local security policy change, not the reghack08/04/2015 - 11:49am
Big PermSorry Beno, it looks like you're right.08/04/2015 - 11:49am
Big PermFrom what I've heard (and obviously I could be wrong here), but I hear even setting it to "0" in the registry will only change to "1" or "Basic" collection. I'll try to find the article I got this from08/04/2015 - 11:40am
benohawkBig Perm, you can disable telemetry, just not through the gui. It's a matter of adding a registry key and disabling a couple services08/04/2015 - 11:34am

Big PermI'm talking about not being able to fully disable telemetry unless you have Enterprise software. It's just creepy to me08/04/2015 - 9:31am
TechnogeekBig Perm: If you're talking about the image I think you are, then no, not really. The claims it makes are, at best, extremely misleading in many instances.08/04/2015 - 9:28am
E. Zachary KnightBig Perm, That would make logical sense, so of course YouTube would not allow you to set your subscription page as the home page.08/04/2015 - 9:14am
Big PermBy the way. Anyone else kind of spooked by Microsofts data collection that's being reported about Win10? Thinking of finally trying a linux box for general use and Windows for gaming only08/04/2015 - 8:59am
Big PermCan you set youtube to load subs instead of recommendations first?08/04/2015 - 8:54am
MonteI've had mostly good experience with Youtube recommendations... only problem is when i watch a certain video that messes it up and gets me reconmendations i don't want. Though all i have to do is remove said video from my history to fix it08/04/2015 - 8:42am
