Based on this notion, the academic community is keen on exploring methods that can deliver deep learner engagement and has shown increased interest in adopting gamification the integration of gaming elements, mechanics, and frameworks into non game situations and scenarios as a means to increase student engagement and improve information retention. Its effectiveness when applied to education has been debatable though, as attempts have generally been restricted to one dimensional approaches such as transposing a trivial reward system onto existing teaching materials and/or assessments. Nevertheless, a gamified, multi dimensional, problem based learning approach can yield improved results even when applied to a very complex and traditionally dry task like the teaching of computer programming, as shown in this paper.

What if the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, rather than the Colorado Midland, had gone belly up first? Highway 82 was constructed largely along the Midland’s previous route. If the D and R G had closed, the highway may instead have taken over that right of way, on the opposite side of the Roaring Fork. Such happenstance may have kept the highway to Aspen on the north side of the valley.
