dc.description.abstractIn this paper we present and evaluate the serious game World of Operating Systems (WoUSO), designed to scaffold an emerging technical community of students. WoUSO is a voluntary, semester-long browser game that embeds quizzes and riddles in multiple forms of player interaction. Game evaluation indicates that WoUSO creates shared experiences in which classroom learning and technical skills become resources for fun and sociability. Competition and player interaction are two main motivational engines of the game; they need to be judiciously calibrated in order to reduce incentives for rule bending, to accommodate multiple styles of play, and to diversify resources for self-presentation and positive reputations.en_US
