Training Providers Should Consider Gamification In
Three reasons why...
1. Challenge learners.
Learners love to be challenged. Challenge them by using multiple variables in each question so that they have to weigh up options and make tradeoffs. Working with multiple variables makes players consider cause-and-effect relationships, weigh multiple options, and prioritize their efforts.
2. Keep score and track results with meaningful values.
Don’t just use points; instead, chose something meaningful.
For example, if you’re conducting training for your customer service team, use satisfaction level as the value to keep score. This makes it easier for learners to relate to the scenarios because the score or points system is related to their job.
3. Unlock new levels when sections are complete.
Like in a game, consider locking levels or chapters in the online training so that levels only open up when the learner has successfully completed a number of set tasks.
