Learnnovators, a leading e-learning company in India, has announced an interview with Karl Kapp, a renowned gamification expert. This interview is part of “Crystal Balling with Learnnovators” – their thought-provoking interview series that attempts to gaze into the future of learning, and was published on 18th December 2013 on their blog.

Karl M. Kapp, Ed.D., CFPIM, CIRM, is a scholar, writer and expert on the convergence of learning, technology and business operations. He is a full professor of instructional technology at Bloomsburg University in Bloomsburg, PA, and serves as the Assistant Director of Bloomsburg’s Institute for Interactive Technologies. He received his Doctorate of Education in Instructional Design at the University of Pittsburgh. He has written six books including the best-selling learning book The Gamification of Learning and Instruction and its accompanying how-to book The Gamification of Learning and Instruction Fieldbook: Theory into Practice.

In this exclusive interview with Learnnovators, Karl Kapp shares his insights and foresights on the challenges of building an education system that aligns with the dynamically changing demands of this knowledge age. He also speaks about how gamification is going to influence this learning revolution, and offers advice for today’s instructional technologists and companies who aspire to incorporate gamification in learning. “Six years ago, ‘game’ was a four letter word in most organizations. It was not to be taken seriously. We added the ‘ification’ to it and suddenly people see the potential for learning. I think that is a wonderfully positive move forward. Yet, we are still in the early stages of gamification for learning.” was Karl’s view about where the industry is today with respect to the adoption of gamification in learning and how it is poised to evolve further.

According to Ravi Pratap Singh, Co-founder of Learnnovators, “We are greatly honoured to be selected as one of the ‘tour stops’ for Karl’s blog book tour (for his new book titled “The Gamification of Learning and Instruction Fieldbook: Theory into Practice”)! We consider this a great privilege, and are excited to have him as our guest in our interview series. This interview will help the learning community benefit from the valuable thoughts that Karl shares about the past, present and the future of gamification and game-based learning.”
