This week in the Usability World…. (week 18)

Gamification!
This is another of the buzz words going around. Not only on web or software development, but also in different teaching and learning environments.

An article by  for Smashing Magazine explains pretty much, in a short and direct way, what gamification of the user experience is and what it is not.

With many good references and tips, this article catch my attention this week.

Also, Mia Due, an anthropologist specialized on online games wrote a short article about gamification. Interesting point of view that can easily be applied to UX design.
