Today we were joined by the amazing Stephen Baer, Head of Creative at The Game Agency to talk about the return on investment (ROI) of gamification. Stephen is also a gaming columnist for Forbes and previously worked at Atari. He’s pretty much a gamification expert!
In today’s webinar, Stephen covered:
- Benefits of Gamified Training
- Gamification vs. Game-Based Training
- Different Types of Game-Based Training
- Delivering an ROI
What is the difference between gamification and game-based training?
Gamification Includes These:
Game-Based Training Is:
- A controlled environment where learners test their knowledge and practice behaviors to achieve a specific goal.
Gamification and game-based training both serve to increase engagement, attained proficiency, post-training confidence, application of training, and retention of learning—all giving you a huge return on investment!
Games can even help you develop soft skills! As Stephen mentioned, a well-designed game can include collaborating with other characters in the game.
Stephen shared a great example of a training game created by a company called Mursion.
