Is Ludodidactics the same as gamification?
No. Ludodidactics is by no means the same as ‘gamification’. Gamification borrows components from games and game design and uses these as independent elements in order to make something that already exists seem more attractive, but without changing its primary function. Gamification focuses on form and mechanics to make something "look like a game", whereas ludodidactics focuses on behaviour and designing predictable outcomes. The contributing experts on ludodidactics have quietly resigned to the fact that the term ‘gamification’ is much more known and possibly more widely accepted, but it has to be repeated that ludodidactics offers a far more comprehensive and in-depth implementation of gaming principles in the domain of education in general.
