Gamification in Education

Gamification in education is an up and coming idea. This paper will look at what
gamification is and the effects of gamification on student motivation, homework, and assessment.
Intrinsic and extrinsic motivation is discussed and the effects gamification has on both types.
Learners use intrinsic motivation when first completing a gamified lesson, however, some learners
turned their motivation to extrinsic motivation after a period of time. The future of gamification in
e-learning is also, although brief, discussed.
