I can recommend the Gamification MOOC run by Prof. Kevin Werbach at Wharton:

You're in luck, next session starts August 15 ;)

Just an idea: how about adding gamification to the mix, linking Watsi accounts to social network profiles? You can take some pages from Zynga's evil playbook and use it for good.

The Gamification course (https://www.coursera.org/course/gamification) seems to be a great resource.

It is one of those topics that there is not too much helpful material online - so I am looking forward to it.
