Gamification

Providing learners with a variety of content can keep them engaged and motivated, encouraging them to learn as they meet training goals. One of the most innovative ways to engage and entertain learners is through gamified e-learning content.

Capture learners’ attention with interactive learning games

E-learning gamification refers to any application of game elements to online training content, for example, creating a simple plot that learners work through in order to complete a section.

Entertaining learners and encouraging them to explore a story increases engagement with course materials. This deeper involvement with the content can help learners to recall information more efficiently, improving retention and success.
