“The game was a fun way to get me to explore sessions that I would not have normally attended ...[and] learning something that ended up being very helpful to me with where I am in my career.”

Carina Hahn, Game Participant at WE15

Virtual event participants tend to join on their computer to access the virtual sessions on a larger screen. Be it a second computer at work or the laptop sitting in the kitchen while cooking a meal. This leaves their mobile phone with the small screen available to participate in gamification.
