Here are all the Episodes of the Gamification Video Guide: The Beginner’s Guide to Gamification
I’ve seen quite a few Gamification Video Courses online these days, but all the ones I have seen are extremely boring AND they lack in deepness. A few of them spread the net very wide and people understand gamification better but not how to apply it.
This is my attempt (and hobby) of making an entertainment video lecturer course, while packing in some advanced gamification techniques, concepts, and examples. The reason why I call it the “Beginner’s Guide” to Gamification, even though it is more advanced than many “expert certification” courses, is because I believe we are all still students in this vast field of Gamification. The industry is just at its beginning, and 10 years later, we would be amazed about how little we knew right now. My goal is to be the pioneer of beginner’s and share all the stuff I have learned!
While 90 Episodes sound like a lot (especially to make…), 900 minutes is less than a semester’s worth of lecturers, and you get it for free (companies and organizations pay me thousands of dollars for this), so you should rejoice and jump for joy right now.

Wow, amazing videos. Where can I find the remaining 67 videos?
The most advanced gamification that I’ve ever come across. This website is so rich in content that it is taking up a lot of my time. But it is very much worth it.
Only regret is that I discover this site so much later than many of you guys here.
Hi Yu-Kai, I buyed your audio-book on audible this Thursday and I am so fascinated by the octalysis framework and the interaction of the 8 core drives, the 4 phases and the game techniques. I like the book and the way it is written/spoken. Today I looked at your website and watched all 23 videos at once. The topic of gamification is very inspiring, partly because it describes people’s motivations in general. I find the approach of Gamifications very interesting to transfer these methods to other industries and to make the work more exciting and interesting, as you described it in your TEDxLausanne. I am curious what else I will discover in your book. We wish you continued success and fun at work.
It occurs to me that looking through the lens of Gamification, the ancient Apprenticeship System and the Formal Education system were all gamified to some extent.
One progressed from Apprentice to Journeyman to Master in a Trade and from Elementary School to High School and then possibly to an AA, BA, MA and PhD…
Alternating reading a book to see the video, a huge harvest, very interesting!
This site is so rich in content. Years of time and energy invested. – Thanks!
