LMS functionality: Gamification
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.
The benefits of gamification
Encourage teamwork and healthy competition
Gamified lessons can be designed to encourage learners to work as a team or drive motivation by introducing some healthy competition with elements such as leader boards, points or badges.
Make assessments fun
E-learning assessments are an effective way of monitoring learner progress and knowledge aquisition but formal assessments can be daunting. Gamification can make assessments fun and less intimidating for learners while still providing L&D admins with important assessment data.
Improve knowledge retention
Gamified lessons have been proven to improve knowledge retention levels by making learning more memorable and promoting a deeper understanding of subject matter. Additionally, when lessons are fun, learners are more likely to revisit content.
