Gamification refers to use of game design and elements in a non-gaming context to drive the desired behavior. In simpler terms, it is about using the system of points, levels, badges, or leaderboards that are common in games, in real-world scenarios.

It includes online quizzes and Challenges which makes learning a bit more fun.

The gamification of learning is an educational approach to motivate students to learn by using video game design and game elements in learning environments.The goal is to maximize enjoyment and engagement through capturing the interest of learners and inspiring them to continue learning. Gamification, broadly defined, is the process of defining the elements which comprise games that make those games fun and motivate players to continue playing, and using those same elements in a non-game context to influence behaviour. In other words, gamification is the introduction of game elements in a non-game situation.

Gamification is an effective approach to make positive change in students' behavior and attitude towards learning, to improve their motivation and engagement.
