Zusammenfassung

Der Einsatz von Gamification zur Förderung der Motivation bei der Nutzung von Informationstechnologie gewinnt in den letzten Jahren stark an Bedeutung in Wissenschaft und Praxis. Auf Grund der Neuheit des Gamification-Phänomens gibt es bisher jedoch nur sehr wenige konkrete Notationen und Sprachen zur Gamifizierung von IT-Systemen. Dieser Beitrag stellt eine BPMN-Notationserweiterung und Prozessmuster für Gamification vor, welche auf Basis einer Analyse verschiedener Gamification-Beispiele entwickelt wurde. Die Anwendung des entwickelten Ansatzes in der Praxis sowie die Evaluation durch eine Expertenbefragung zeigen auf, dass das Ergebnis ein praktisches Hilfsmittel zur Planung, Kommunikation und Dokumentation von Gamification-Vorhaben darstellt.

Abstract

During recent years the application of gamification to increase motivation of information technology use has gained great popularity in science and practice. Due to the novelty of the gamification phenomena only few concrete models and notations exist to gamify information systems. This article proposes an extension for BPMN and gamification process patterns, which were derived from various gamification use cases. The developed approach was evaluated in a practical use case and a structured expert survey. The findings indicate practical benefits for planning, communication and documentation of gamification projects.
