If you’re more comfortable with YouTube playlists, here is another one that is similar:



ONLINE COURSES: (Also look in iTunesU)

Gamification Coursera (Free online course -I highly recommend this for those seriously considering gamification)

3D Gamelab (Look for Teacher Camps – not free like the Coursera course, but fun and practical – you learn to use their interface as part of your class “game”)

Game-Based Learning MOOC (run by a very knowledgeable and professional group of college students – great if you’re a “gamer”)
