Gamification is the integration of game mechanics, or game dynamics, into a learning experience, while game-based training can be defined as a game designed for the purpose of solving a problem. However, these words are being used in parallel by the industry and it can be quite confusing. This session will focus on the clarification of gamification and game-based training. Using examples from the industry, this session will help to explain each of the learning experiences, and discuss the best practices in their development.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are making waves in higher education. The world's top universities are creating online courses and giving them away for free. Learning leaders need to understand all the possibilities that MOOCs present: from encouraging employees to utilize MOOCs as part of their continuing professional education, to understanding the learning practices that enable MOOCs to deliver experiences globally. While the providers of these educational offerings are still working out a business model of their own, there exists an opportunity for businesses to benefit from the MOOC movement.
This session will take a balanced view at the evidence for MOOCs, giving you the tools to evaluate the potential for this exciting new field.
