Making work, learning, or any kind of training fun is not a new concept. When you were a kid, you were probably required to clean your room. However, because your mom wanted you to actually clean your room, she may have enticed you by saying “Let’s make this into a game!” Even further, she probably enticed you with a treat or allowance as your reward for “winning” the game.
This method doesn’t just work on a child. This concept is what actually leads to not only effective learning, but inspired learners!
Training software is everywhere. You can search the term Corporate training software and find tons of options. The issue though, is the mundane nature of many of these solutions. The concept of “make learning fun” isn’t a part of these platforms. This leads to uninspired and unengaged learners. They see learning as a chore and something their boss is forcing them to do. If you want your organization’s training to be a success, it is important that the platform makes learning fun.
Gamification is an example of a tool that can really help to achieve this concept! This makes learning interactive and appealing, and creates the feeling of just playing a game. Gamification also includes the likes of leaderboards, the ability to team up with others, and different tasks that need to be completed. This concept will not only be enjoyable to use, but it will encourage better results as well.
As you can see, this approach makes learning a lot easier, effective, and more enjoyable.
