The Science of Gamification

Program Description:

Can the psychology found in popular games enhance the user experience in both instructor-led courses and computer-based training?

Using your existing content, could you:

  • Add points to tasks that need to be completed
  • Define rewards to be given out after some specific criteria is met
  • Create a leaderboard to give status to top performers
  • Define levels to encourage performance of harder tasks
  • Unlock higher levels as badges are earned

What if you wrapped these game mechanics in a well-written, thought-provoking story? Would it take your current curriculum and create a more interactive and better user experience?

Are you interested in learning how to introduce these types of gaming dimensions to the training and development you currently offer?

Join us March 9th for a taste of Gamification!
