Network Effects - Collaboration Curve - MMO Serious Game

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

The Informal Learning Blog by Jay Cross exposes the introduction of the collaboration curve to the learning community in this post. Expanding the idea of network effects one step further with the collaboration curve is intriguing to me because it puts a name to an idea that we have all been discussing. I can relate because I am now "playing" WoW WITH someone, AND enjoying the benefits of belonging to a Guild (a group of players).

Using Games and Gamification for Employee Screening

Kapp Notes

So you do is create a contest where applicants needed to complete a series of challenging problems involving trying to breach various computer systems and networks. The applicants compete for a limited number of spots and need to demonstrate knowledge of network software, creative approaches to firewall breaches and time to breach. So linking a specific skill to a specific behavior on the job to specific action a player takes in a game can become an issue.

Social Learning is Voluntary; Collaboration Platforms are Enablers

ID Reflections

Developing Skills through Gamification

Your Training Edge

Games are compelling and can lead to behavioral manipulation without the player even knowing it.

And if we play a game long enough, with a big enough network of players, we feel a part of something bigger than ourselves—part of an epic story, an important project, or a global community.”
