6 Killer Examples Of Gamification In eLearning:

6 Killer Examples Of Gamification In eLearning Gamification in eLearning is fast emerging as an effective technique to engage learners. It has found its place under the sun for serious learning (that is, meeting specified learning outcomes). 4 In this article, I will share 6 examples that outline how we have created immersive learning experiences using gamification for varied training needs like induction and onboarding, professional skills enhancement, compliance, soft skills enhancement, and behavioral change programs.

Using Gamification In eLearning:

Using Gamification In eLearning Let’s first understand what gamification is and how it is different from playing games . 5 According to Wikipedia, "Gamification techniques strive to leverage people's natural desires for socializing, learning, mastery, competition, achievement, status, self-expression, altruism, or closure.” Gamification is about more than just playing games (in fact, sometimes it does not involve playing games at all). It can be defined as the concept of applying game-design thinking to non-game applications. In the context of Gamification for serious learning, a game based concept is applied to content to meet the specific learning outcomes.

What Are The Benefits Of Gamification In eLearning?:

What Are The Benefits Of Gamification In eLearning? 6 Benefits of Gamification in eLearning 6 1. Better learning experience The learner can experience “fun” during the game and still learn if the level of engagement is high. A good gamification strategy with high levels of engagement will lead to an increase in recall and retention. 2. Better learning environment 3. Instant feedback Gamification in eLearning provides an effective, informal learning environment, and helps learners practice real life situations and challenges in a safe environment. This leads to a more engaged learning experience that facilitates better knowledge retention. It provides instant feedback so that learners know what they know or what they should know. This too facilitates better learner engagement and thereby better recall and retention.

Impact on bottom line Points, badges, and leaderboards would surely make training awesome. However, gamification is about a lot more than just those surface level benefits. Gamification can drive strong behavioral change especially when combined with the scientific principles of repeated retrieval and spaced repetition. Gamification can be used to fulfill most learning needs including induction and onboarding , product sales, customer support, soft skills, awareness creation, and compliance. On account of all these aspects that touch and impact learners (better learning experience, higher recall and retention, catalyzing behavioral change, and so on), it can create a significant performance gain for organizations.

Does Gamification Really Help Learners Recall Or Retain Information Better?:

Does Gamification Really Help Learners Recall Or Retain Information Better? The answer is an emphatic “yes .” 8 This is summarized very effectively in the following statement (as per Wikipedia ): Gamification techniques strive to leverage people’s natural desires for socializing, learning, mastery, competition, achievement, status, self-expression, altruism, or closure. Gamification strategies include use of rewards for players who accomplish desired tasks or competition to engage players. Types of rewards include points, achievement badges or levels, the filling of a progress bar, or providing the user with virtual currency. Making the rewards for accomplishing tasks visible to other players or providing leaderboards are further ways of encouraging players to compete .

How Can You Ensure Success Of Gamification In eLearning?:

How Can You Ensure Success Of Gamification In eLearning? Success of gamification in eLearning is driven by the power of the concept that it is based on. An effective gamification concept is one that: Captures (and retains) learners’ attention. Challenges them. Engages and entertains them. Teaches them . 9

Gamification In eLearning: 6 Killer Examples:

Gamification In eLearning: 6 Killer Examples While gamification has been applied in several domains, our focus has been on its application in serious learning. The games that we design are therefore geared to meet definite learning outcomes . 10 Our gamification strategies broadly map to: Complete gamification, wherein: Tasks or concepts that are overlaid on the learning content but are not related to the content. Contextual tasks or concepts that are overlaid on the learning content. Partial gamification (notably in inline checks and end of course assessments )

Professional skills enhancement. Compliance. Soft skills enhancement. Behavioral change. Gamify assessments for traditional eLearning courses (partial gamification ).

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification:

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification Example 1: Induction Program The gamification concept: We chose the 100 days induction cum onboarding plan to map to a theme of a mission that needed learners to clear various levels within the stipulated time. It also had leaderboards to enable them to assess how they are faring against the other team members . 12

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification:

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification Example 2: Professional Skills Enhancement (account management fundamentals for project managers and account managers). The gamification concept : An avatar based gamification approach. The highlights of this approach were: Creation of different learner paths. Alignment of the learning and gamification path to the proficiency of learners. Presentation of a mix of questions in each path (mapping to real-life challenges commensurate with the proficiency level of the learners). Non availability of learning aids of theory (lifeline) for higher proficiency learners to make the challenge tougher. (The complexity and the nature of the challenges posed to the learners tested their cognitive proficiency to tackle the situation at hand, thereby resulting in immersive learning.) 13

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification:

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification Example 3: Compliance. The gamification concept: We created a simulation based, task oriented gamification course, which was interactive and engrossing. The game scenario was mapped to the context of risk management and the incremental learning was provided at each stage of the game as the learners took the challenges and overcame them. To achieve this, we incorporated a real work environment (visually), an element of challenge (bonuses and bombs), rewards for success (caps, badges), and learning through activities including elements of surprise and delight. We provided the learners the choice to seek support while performing the assigned task like in a real life scenario mapping to actual human behavior in such situations. This ensured a true simulated environment to encourage application of knowledge through performance. 14

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification:

Examples #1 to 4 | Complete Gamification Example 4: Rewards And Recognition. The gamification concept: This too uses an avatar based approach. The learners go through a series of gamified activities that map to the required qualities of a given reward category. The activities simulate and reinforce the qualities the individuals have to maintain to win. The scores lead them to gaining the reward. This approach also features leaderboards. 15

Examples #5 & 6 | Partial Gamification: Features Gamified Activities Or Gamified Assessments:

Examples #5 & 6 | Partial Gamification: Features Gamified Activities Or Gamified Assessments Here are a couple of examples that show how partial gamification techniques can be applied to a traditional eLearning course. This simple value addition can make a standard eLearning course more fun and engaging. Of the two examples of partial gamification techniques featured here, the first one shows a gamified activity while the second one shows a gamified assessment . 16 Example 5: Soft skills / time management - A gamified activity on time wasters.

This can be used to enhance learner engagement in any traditional eLearning course.

Conclusion:

Conclusion The power of gamification in eLearning that is aligned to learning outcomes is clearly evident in these 6 examples. I hope this article was useful in helping you understand how you can use gamification in eLearning for almost all of your training needs . At EI Design, we have a very mature gamification practice and we can help you in transforming your traditional eLearning approaches to more immersive gamified approaches. 18
