What is Gamification and how can be used?
Gamification is the big deal in e-learning! Essentially, it’s the use of game elements in a non-game context. It maximizes enjoyment and elevates engagement by capturing the interest of learners and motivating them to continue learning and complete their courses.
Gamification has seen the light of the day as a significant trend in the field of learning and development in the past few years. On this webinar, we’ll explore what gamification is and how it can be used to create more meaningful, engaging and interactive training experience along with your company.
Implementing the gamification in training will help you maintain the external motivation of your employees and push their psychological areas. Why? Because the same learning strategies could easily get monotonous and they are no longer going to want to continue with their training or they could stop the process that you started with a lot of effort, sacrifice, and resources.
A platform adapted with game elements can create interactive scenery that helps your users accomplish their goals, learn through creative activities and resources, and finish their training while there are also having fun. This is the main reason why we recommend you use gamification in training for your employees or customers.
Let’s see how Gamification in training has helped companies around the globe
Mcdonald’s, the fast-food giant, faced a very peculiar challenge pertaining to the training of their new employees. This was because they have new people joining them as associates without any training. These people are mostly young college goers or others prefer working part-time while pursuing their other life goals.
They came up with the idea of creating Nintendo games which teaches them how to flip burgers, what the right temperature of fries should be and so on and so forth. The best part was that the learners could use their free time, to play these Nintendo games and gain expertise.
So the games were helping them train, while at the same time, Mcdonald’s was saving a lot of time in training, and the employees were having fun while learning.

This created a sense of challenge, adventure, and status, as a result of which the users were contributing more and more to the community. At the same time, the users, as well as the customers, were learning more and more.
