In 2018 the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization designed a self-guided learning course on Gamification for Humanitarian Learning on the Humanitarian Leadership Academy’s learning platform, Kaya. The course is the result of a collaborative project between the two organisations that used design thinking and gamification for the co-creation of learning in Kenya, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Jordan and via a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
The course has the following objectives:
• define serious games and identify best practices in different sectors
• define game elements and get familiar with learning frameworks for serious games
• identify the main phases of design thinking and use it as a step-by-step approach to build serious games
• create mobile supported learning games using Gamoteca as an authoring tool
The digital badge, therefore, though provided by the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, is endorsed by the International Training Centre of the International Training Organization, as subject matter experts and designers of the learning experience.
