Improving collaboration through personalised gamification

We don't all like the same books so why force everyone to use the same interface?

There are many factors that may impact productivity within a given online social platform, ranging from the quality of interpersonal relationship of participants, situational and contextual factors (i.e. attitude toward organisation), quality of user interface and cultural perspectives. However a fundamental gap in knowledge, which this study is looking to address, is the impact of game dynamics as it relates to framing social interactions and their impact on performance. We are focusing on the impact of reward structures manifest through gamification and the mediating effect of personality traits.
