Gamification is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems and increase users' self contributions. Gamification allows learners to have fun while attaining information, and encourages them to share that information with their peers.
Mega VET (Move to Enhance Gamified Applications in VET), is an international project which is funded by European Union within the framework of Erasmus+.
At the end of the long period , almost 2 years, the amazing consortium with 5 different institutions at international level were able to develop the following outputs as a result of unprecendented effort;
1. Mega VET BOOK: offers you a wide range of knowledge about the Gamification which is getting popular and gaininig importance since 2011 when it was introduced to those who are interested in gamified contents and keep themselves away from the traditional methods commonly used during the education period. Furthermore, that book is a reference for all techno lovers who wish to get more information concerning game dynamics and mechanics. More importantly, that resource is available in five different languages ; Turkish, Slovenian, Greek, Italian and Spanish version. The fact that we developed that book in these languages specified above has resulted from the lack of these kinds of printed materials in education sector and also the need of having it as a coursebook at the schools. Mega VET BOOK with ISBN code is always a step forward contrary to the other books as it may be used as a course material, reference for all possible users who love games, an amazing guide for teachers, and educators.

Having provided a huge effort on it, the Slovenian team has the capacity to hold these kind of courses in their institutions so soon.
