FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I participate in Gschool?

Gschool runs completely online. You need an Internet-connected  computer or mobile phone to access the materials and attend the live meetings.

What topics do you cover? 

Gschool targets key skills needed for cross-functional product teams. You’ll learn product strategy, customer research, game & UX design, and product management. 

What happens if I get busy? 

Gschool is designed to work with your schedule. You move at your own pace, and get full access to the videos, templates and private group as long as you’re a member.

What if I can’t make it to the live meetings?

All of our group coaching meetings are recorded and uploaded the next day, so if you can’t make it live, you can watch and learn on your own schedule.

Game Thinking sounds great, but I’m building an app/platform/enterprise system. Is this only for games?

Game Thinking will improve any product experience that can be built around learning, mastery and empowerment. It works for games – and ALSO for products, apps, blogs, marketplaces, and events where the goal is long-term engagement. 

This reminds me of Gamification – but I’m not hearing a lot about game mechanics. What’s the difference?

Gamification opens the door and gets people interested in the power of games. Game Thinking is the next step.  You’ll learn how to bring your ideas to life like a game designer, and create  Learning Loops that empower your players

Will my employer cover the cost?  

If your company has a training budget, this should be covered. Participating will enhance your product design and management skills & your entire team will benefit from the tools you bring back to the company.  Learn More…

Is this a good fit for me? 

It depends on what kind of outcomes you’re looking for.  If you want to 10X your early product design efforts, accelerate your path to product/market fit, and leverage the true underlying power of games – Gschool is for you.
