    Abstract

    Description
    While a blended and flipped learning approach to encourage students to prepare for a face-to-face class is well documented, less is known about using game-like elements to increase student engagement with preparation activities. To provide students with opportunities for game-like experiences in a university context, a subject requires redesigning and adaptation within the elearning platform. The pilot project at Flinders University aimed to investigate whether game-like elements in the weekly online study plan would increase the level of motivation of 400+ first-year pre-registration nursing students to complete preliminary study prior to undertaking weekly face-to-face classes. The study’s findings and recommendations will enable university educators to consider how game-like elements effect the motivation of their students, and how educators could design a game-like approach across subjects and within disciplines in the higher education sector.
