Custom eLearning solution
Gamification training, or gamification of learning, is the use of gameplay elements in a learning experience. At ELM, we know that custom gamification training, when backed by an understanding of neuroscience, is a powerful tool for inspiring learners to challenge themselves.
Gamification is uniquely poised to motivate your learners and level up your corporate training. By adding game elements—think leaderboards, points, timers, and challenges—learners are able to approach training in an autonomous, meaningful way that engages their brains and introduces a little healthy competition without learners actually being together. Traditional training can suffer from too much info—or not enough. Corporate gamification gives learners a chance to demonstrate their knowledge in a stimulating way before moving on to new or more difficult topics. Learners will incrementally improve on and master topics without informational overload. The result? True learning autonomy and mastery.
Gamification has the potential to increase productivity by 50%, reduce overall training time by 90%, and reduce new-hire training time during onboarding by 70%, but it’s often overlooked as nothing more than a trendy buzzword. By combining what we know about neuroscience, cognition, and motivation with engaging design, gamification becomes part of a training strategy that is anything but child’s play.
Brains have powerful neurological pathways that activate depending on what we’re doing. The brain’s default mode network (DMN) is responsible for “autopilot mode,” which is sometimes what we’re in during traditional training. When the brain is challenged or entertained, its working memory network (WMN) takes over. The WMN lets learners absorb new information and convert it into long-term memory.
ELM utilizes our extensive understanding of neuroscience to trigger your learners’ WMNs via gamification. By building in stories, challenges, and giving users real-time feedback, information converts to long-term recall without learners even realizing it.
Applying gamification judiciously at the right places and times adds a layer of depth and entertainment to your content. Some of the benefits you’ll see from gamifying your training include:
