I was intending to call this part ‘Digital Umami’ to convey the concept of something which is imperceptibly delicious. However, after much more reading over the years I decided on ‘Engaging’ in part from Fogg’s – elaboration on Reeves and Nass – Social Dynamics. The topics we will be looking at here focus on fun, enjoyment, cooperation, collaborative activities, and what has come to be known as ‘gamification’.
‘Engaging Use’ – adding this dynamism has become of great interest to the emotional design of the user experience practitioner. Even though it is still, somewhat, in its infancy. We will be looking at playfulness, funology, and what has come to be known as ‘Gamification’. We will then continue with a look at the wider design of ‘things’ as our interfaces and computational interactions move from the desktop to the embedded and imbedded environment.
