5 Facts About Gamification For Serious Learning

  • Q1. What is gamification?
  • Gamification is an alternate approach (to
    traditional eLearning) to provide engaging,
    immersive, and effective learning experiences to
    your learners. By using gaming principles,
    elements, and innovative strategies, learners can
    be engaged and encouraged to apply this learning
    at work.
  • It provides an effective informal learning
    environment and helps learners practice real life
    situations and challenges in a safe environment.
    Typical components of gamification-based learning
    courses are shown here.

  • Q2. What are the advantages of using gamification
    vis-a-vis traditional eLearning?
  • Unlike traditional eLearning, gamification
  • Evokes friendly competition.
  • Brings in a spirit of achievement.
  • Enhances user engagement and can be used as a
    behavior change tool.
  • Encourages learners to progress through the
    content, motivates action, influences behavior,
    and drives innovation.

  • Q3. How does gamification impact learning?
  • There are several aspects of learning, notably
    its retention, and eventual application on the
    job that can be influenced by gamification.
  • Specifically
  • Gamification puts scientific principles of
    repeated retrieval and spaced repetition to good
    effect and brings about a remarkable change in
    behavior.
  • Games can be fun for the learner but still have
    a significant impact on learning. (The player can
    experience fun during the game and still
    experience learning during gameplay if the
    level of engagement is high.)
  • Playing games with high levels of engagement
    leads to an increase in retention.

  • Q5. Can gamified trainings meet specific learning
    outcomes like the traditional online/ILT programs?
  • Approach 1 Complete Gamification.
  • The entire learning is driven by interactive
    scenarios in which the learners progress through
    a series of challenges (that map to each level in
    the game).
  • Specifically
  • Learners may be provided with an option to refer
    to the content at any time in the game as a
    lifeline.
  • Their responses to the challenges based on the
    scenarios they encounter will promote them to the
    subsequent levels to eventually master the
    concept and meet the learning objectives.
  • We specialize in building up an engaging gaming
    experience through multiple levels. This helps us
    ensure better retention of learning plus test the
    learners application of the learning.

    quizzes (assessments) and integrate game
    mechanics in knowledge checks and assessments.
