Gamification Notes:

This is the 4th Episode out of 90 on Gamification, and it introduces my core framework: Octalysis. For those who are following my work, you’ll see a lot of repeat information, but after this episode, we’ll start diving into new content that I haven’t covered yet (there’s a reason why I set it to 90 episodes).

In this episode, we cover:

  • What Octalysis is
  • Reason behind creating Octalysis
  • Review of the 8 Core Drives in Gamification
  • Basics of Octalysis
  • Left Brain and Right Brain Octalysis
  • White Hat and Black Hat Gamification

As I’m still doing a lot of new experiments in these videos, please leave as much feedback as possible (perhaps there is a way to gamify “brutal feedback”)

By the time I finished all 90 episodes, my video editing skills will most likely surpass my Gamification skills…if that is even possible!

    At this point, I understand the necessity of a balance between white vs. black hat gamification, but how about left side vs. right side? Is it about targeting more people?

    To me the concept of gamification is core to life after all we all want to win the game – I am truly excited to be able to learn all about it from the Master
