What is Gamification? NOUN Pronunciation:\gā-mə-fə-ˈkā-shən\
Definition of gamification Gamification is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems.
Gamification is founded in the fundamentals of human psychology and behavioral science, and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level and triggers.
Gamification is not about simply rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors companies want to encourage among their employees and or customers.
Gamification includes a robust set of game mechanics including badges, points, leaderboards, chance, competition, collaboration, knowledge sharing, status, achievement, exploration, teamwork and so much more.
