You can still sign up at https://www.coursera.org/course/gamification. And in the meantime, post photos of gamification examples you encounter in the real world to hashtag #GamifyIt on Twitter or Instagram. My TAs will highlight the best ones on the course forums. (Nothing like a little competition to get motivational juices flowing!)
