COVID-19: Hubken is working as normal Get in touch today

The term gamification has been around for years, but what is it? Simply, it’s about bringing elements from game design into a non-game context and there are good reasons to do so.

Many people who’ve been in the workforce for years will have got into gaming as children but even for the non-gamers amongst us introducing gamification into your Moodle LMS can make a big difference (and implementing it can be much easier than you think!).


Why introduce gamification into your LMS?

  • Improved learner engagement – by using gamification to provide a sense of reward, achievement and even competition. For example, you can award learners points, as well as congratulations for completing specific actions.
  • Deeper learning – presenting learning in a gamified format which may be more visual or interactive can improve learner understanding especially for those who may struggle with more traditional presentations of e-learning.
  • Develop learning pathways – use gamification to incentivise your learners who follow pre-defined learning routes to attain the knowledge or skills they need to do their job to the highest standard.


The easy way to introduce gamification in Moodle – with 'Level up!':

If you using Hubken’s Moodle Solution you’ll be pleased to hear there is a Moodle plug-in that delivers all the benefits of gamification. It’s called Level up! and once it’s installed your learning administrators will be able to add a whole new dimension to their learning programmes without a lot of work.
