Gamification is a process that uses game mechanics and applies them to eLearning. Gaming techniques have been proven to motivate and engage users by setting goals and rewards such as badges, points and certificates. It works as an incentive for learners to complete each stage and progress to the next challenging themselves to achieve their personal best or competing with their peers.
We’ve found Gamification a fun and effective technique for increasing engagement and often use it within our eLearning designs. Not only is it great for learners, with results stored in the LMS training managers, HR and other interested parties can access the information at any time giving them an insight into how learners are progressing and where additional support might be required.
