If you are a working professional, bear in mind that James's offer of complimentary consulting has expired (this video is 6 years old!). HOWEVER, don't despair if you're on a tight budget--in the time since this video was made, there are a LOT more free or very affordable resources available now for applying gamified design to your particular situation. We encourage you to peruse the existing research and literature on gamification that's been done, or even join one of the existing communities for educators and others who are interested in gamification.
