Get the Most Out of Gamification | Modern Learning

Gamification, Gamifiation, Gamification… We’re all talking about it right? There are few topics more popular than this in the learning space. But here’s the thing: It’s for good reason! Gamification can actually change your training, create happier employees and increase results! Why? Because well trained employees are happy employees! Take that a step further and make the training enjoyable…? You’ve got a grand slam on your hands!

So, how can you get the most out of gamification? Here’s a few ideas!

Keep the rules simple: Don’t create anything too complicated or employees are likely to check out and not engage.

Award points based on skills mastery, not progress through the game: You want your team working through the entire game, but completion isn’t the point – mastery is!

Rely on good instructional design: Keep things as user-friendly as possible and you’ll see greater buy-in and engagement.

Use leaderboards to improvement over time and personal bests: Giving recognition to participants can go a long way in keeping them engaged.

Align the game with learners’ actual jobs: Keep it practical and helpful for their every day work.

Help learners learn from failures as well as successes: Success is great, but we most often learn from failure. Make sure to help them through both of these.
