Incentivize collaboration and connect participants to the larger goals of an online meeting or conference.

Headlines provides a respite from the potential boredom of an online conference and helps to focus participants on future problems or successes centered around a topic or project.

The game-experience allows a group of participants working in small teams to collaboratively create headlines for good and bad events in a potential future. 

These headlines are related to a central topic or theme that connects to the larger goals of the online conference. Participants are rewarded for collaboration and creativity and the most  relevant headlines then become part of the larger conversation.

Co-created headlines will have a higher ranking in the next session. So players are rewarded for collaborating on a headline.

Players then vote on their favorite headlines

Players vote on the headlines written, and comment on why they liked them. Participants can then discuss the issues raised.

“The interaction with the artist was inspiring for people. It really helped our group grapple with some issues that were pretty abstract and the cartoons helped us make them more clear and concrete and meaningful.”
