Work and Research

My background is in Multimedia, which is concerned with the use of technology in a variety of contexts such as human-computer interaction, games and virtual reality. I am also passionate about improving education and learning at a tertiary level. My field of expertise is the use of games in non-game contexts to improve motivation and engagement. For my Masters degree I used these concepts to create a gamified learning system which I implemented in a first-year module at the University of Pretoria. The results showed that the learners were highly motivated by the system.
