Researchers from Finland and Sweden wants to say thank you!
A year and a half ago, we reached out for help at this forum, asking you to complete a survey. This survey was the final one in a series of studies during which we developed an instrument (GAMEFULQUEST) for measuring the experience of using a gamified service – the gameful experience. In addition, we developed a theoretical model how this gameful experience can be described.
Thanks to your help, this study has now been published, and we wish to express our gratitude to all of you who took the time to finish our survey. Moreover, we also would like send a special thank you to the moderators who helped us during this data collection.
