Gamification – a Winning LTD

(Learning, Training & Development) Strategy. 

What is Gamification?

  • Gamification is the introduction and integration of game mechanics and game logic in a non-game setting; it uses psychology to increase participation and motivation, drive higher employee engagement, and productivity and resulting in improved business performance – it is not simply adding a game to a learning intervention.
  • Typical game elements include points, badges, leaderboards, progress bars, levels, or tiers, challenges, and status.

Why Adopt Gamification as a Training Strategy?

  • Boosts motivation and engagement.
  • Standardised assessments – transparency – no favouritism.
  • Instant feedback.
  • Increase in learning span.
  • Reinforce learning.
  • Increase in knowledge retention and recall.
  • Enhance productivity.
  • Freedom of self-paced learning.
  • Ensure learner’s attention and engagement to training.

Micro-and Mobile Learning comes to the fore

  • Due to increasing work pressure and cost, employers are finding it ever more difficult to release employees to attend full-time instructor-led training during working hours.
  • Equally, with little time on hand, employees do not want a learning overdose and lengthy training sessions.
  • Fortunately, micro-learning comes to the rescue. What is micro-learning? As the name suggests, it is short, focused learning catering to both formal and informal needs. It is specifically designed to cater to human attention spans and working memory capacity.
