Abstract [en]

The implementation of a Course Management System into an educational institution oriented to students with learning disabilities such as ADHD,  represents a big challenge since these students experience persistent impairments in attention (or concentration) that impact negatively on their learning outcomes, engagement and motivation. It’s crucial to adapt and enhance these environments having in consideration the students’ special learning needs, in order to improve their user experience and engagement during their learning process. This thesis address the design and development of gamified layer that brings a current analog gamification practice into a Course Management System Environment, Google Classroom (GC). The prototype developed retrieves, transforms and shows the GC data in form of game elements such as points, badges, and progress bars, among others. After using the prototype during three weeks, the students showed an easy familiarization with the gamified layer of GC and an active participation and persistence during their course activities.
