Using gamification in business can have impressive results, but simply adding badges won’t solve your problems. You need a plan that starts with your goals.
Learning Games Showcase 2016
If you’re not getting the kind of results you expect from your online learning, maybe your content is just a little too boring (sorry, somebody had to tell you). Not to worry, that’s an easy problem to solve with the power of Learning Games!
Learning games are the key to unlocking maximum engagement from your training content. Instead of subjecting your learners to passive eLearning, learning games are more interactive, more enjoyable and as a result, more effective.
The future of L&D
Because learning games produce such great results, game-based learning approaches have been transforming training in all industries, from retail to defence and with the market set to grow to almost $9billion by 2017, there’s never been a better time to unleash game based learning in your L&D.
Who are Learning Games for?
Gone are the days when games were just there to keep the kids distracted. Now, the average game player is 35 years old, and game mechanics are everywhere from your local coffee shop to your favourite airline.
Generation Y, millennials, call them what you will, the up-and-coming generation of employees demands a more game-like experience.
People in high-risk jobs can’t afford to make mistakes during training. Simulations let them learn in risk-free environment.
When training seems like just another distraction from ‘real’ work, learning games deliver bite-sized content in an engaging format.
Once you’ve been burned once by dull online learning, it takes something pretty special to make you a believer again.
