This app makes use of gamification to get prospective students interested in higher education. The app constructs a persona based on players' responses to a quiz. The responses from the quiz assigns characteristics, from which persona attributes are then derived. Players are then able to use their persona's to battle other professions. 

nextStep allows players to get real information about courses that may be a good match for them, while making it fun in the process. The app uses data from the Federation University course listing. We've selected a specific sample of courses for our proof of concept (bachelor degrees). From each entry, we've used the degree title, description and career opportunies as we felt this information to be most relevant.
