Incentives to get users to log in and personalize?

I'm working on a re-design of my company's online support community. In our re-design, we plan to offer many more features and customization/personalization options-- but users will need to be logged in to take advantage of them (e.g., suggestions of content and local community connections based on preferences, profiles and locations, ability to customize content and view, etc).

Providing Contextual Help: Pedagogical Agent Framework

Hi All.

This is my first time posting on the site, but I always see great discussions, so hoping you can help with my challenge.

I'm working on an educational website that has been cast as a video game. The student is asked to perform a series of activities aboard a space ship and the metaphor is that they're sitting at a terminal while on the ship making decisions.

Apologies for duplicated posting

Sorry everyone, for the replicated posting. The web site was producing a message when I sumitted saying 'system unavailable, please try later'. So I did. I never did get a confirmation, but I gather the emails were being sent in spite of the failure message.

Regards,

William
