I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

... which begs the question in which culture was it tested? Hopefully you can find the original references.

comment Why is it easier to remember the correct response for problems with many options rather than just two?
I wasn't sure which one was which so I didn't mention it intentionally. :) We don't have those around here. But yes, that's what I was referring to.

Phrased as a question + slight grammar improvements.

But you would encode a light switch with a LED indicator indicating whether or not the light is on into long term memory. :) ... proving your point I guess.

comment What are the minimal requirements for successful gamification?
... and what I always wonder, can you overdo it? (That's what RPGs often feel like to me.)
