Another Gamification MOOC Course Completed

#gamification course score

Despite the completion rate for MOOCs is an average 15% according to latest papers, I have finished the five MOOCs I have started. Here’s the list with link to the specific post or the certificates themselves:

  1. 3D Printing Ninja (, 2012)
  2. Ser Más creativos (Universidad de México, Coursera, 2013)
  3. eLearning and Digital Cultures (University of Edimburgh, 2013)
  4. Gamification Design (, 2014)
  5. Gamification (University of Pennsylvania, Coursera, 2016)

A few weeks ago I completed the fifth one, again on #Gamification. This time from a business minded perspective. It was a very straight-forward course: video, quiz, open question to a discussion board, video, video quiz, long quiz, written assessment, peer evaluation and over again. I imagine that is what most people want, so that is what Coursera offers. It wasn’t bad at all, don’t get me wrong, but I still think eLearning could make learning less passive. Professor Kevin Werbach’s lectures were efficient, recalling basic concepts and examples whenever necessary, covering many areas I had never taken into consideration while using gamification.

The making of “Edupunks go Digital Vikings” – where did it come from? #edcmooc

After publishing my final assigment Digital Artifact for the eLearning and Digital Culture MOOC, I decided to try and provide a background of the creation process. These are some ideas I think are closely related:

Being quite a DIY fan and edupunk (check my retro gaming T-Shirts above), has made me experience somehow many of the topics suggested in the course. I also consider myself a tech-oriented fellow who likee to keep in touch with nature (I’m a newbie vegetable homegrower too!). I had also been closely related to the netaudio scene since its early stages so I’m familiar with Electronic and Experimental music, Creative Commons,  Open Culture, Copyleft and Sahring Economy.

Remix or mashup all these attitudes and you could get something like:

Q4: best MOOC experience has been to verify learning is rather hypertextual than lineal #edcmchat
