LMS functionality: Gamification

Drive motivation, increase engagement and inject fun into L&D

Increase engagement and retention with gamification

Transform online learning by incorporating game-like elements and mechanics into L&D courses and programmes. 

Gamification is designed to enhance the learning experience by making it more immersive, interactive and engaging for learners. Gamified lessons are made up of elements such as badges, leaderboards and light-hearted gameplay mechanics. For more sophisticated gamified lessons, organisations can acquire SCORM activities, created by third-party content creators. Some popular examples of this type of gamification can be found in scenario-based training modules and simulations which place learners in a virtual, interactive teaching environment.

With the right LMS, gamification can easily be implemented, producing better outcomes for your organisation such as higher knowledge retention rates and learner satisfaction.
