The University of Texas Rio Grande (UTRGV) Center for Online Learning, Teaching and Technology (COLTT) has developed and implemented a gamification framework, which applies best practices and Quality Matters principles to their online and hybrid courses. This framework provides a means of using such items for storytelling, achievements for badges, and clever application of adaptive release within learning modules, to apply game thinking, game elements, and game mechanics into non-game environments.
