Getting Everyone on Board With Gamification

We had a great webinar earlier this week with Misty Harding, Instructional Designer extraordinaire. During that webinar Game-Based Design, we had lots of questions that we ran out of time for. Misty kindly answered a few afterward for us. You can check out her thoughts on building accessible games here. Today, let’s find out her advice on persuading your stakeholders that gamification is the way to go. (Plus, another bonus question because there were just so many!)
