Lack of interaction with corporate training programs is yet a challenge for many L&D leaders. So, organizations are increasingly adopting gamification in eLearning to boost their workforce engagement through fun, teamwork, and motivation. Gaming elements like levels, goals, feedback, failure, etc. when incorporated with training & development programs can kindle overall engagement and excitement quotient.
Organizations wanting to increase employee engagement with training implement gamification in their eLearning programs: to transform tedious and lengthy sessions into a fun-filled activity for improved outcomes. Games trigger intrinsic motivation; that is, employees, engage for their own interests rather than getting bribed for a raise (extrinsic motivation).
1. Long-term Gamification
This approach incorporates simulations, more challenges, and affirmation of employee performance through consistent feedback. Consequently, this will enable learners to stick with training programs for a longer span, thus boosting overall engagement and retention.
2. Mobile-aided Gamification
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies promote an immersive gamification experience on your mobile devices. For instance, using an AR-enabled game-based mobile app, corporate salesforce can ask customers to scan the product’s QR code and watch an animated video on the product’s features and benefits. This drives product awareness, customer satisfaction and improves brand loyalty in the market. The other aspect of using a personalized game-based app is to enable the managers to track their team’s performance in real-time, assess how employees are faring against the set targets, and determine the overall impact of training. This imbibes some sense of encouragement and team collaboration among the employees while keeping learning more fun and less boring.
3. Microlearning-led Gamification
As the bite-sized content delivery helps to boost performance and training impact, microlearning-enabled gamification solutions can accelerate the same. You can create gamified learning paths comprising levels, rewards, leaderboards, and more that cater to the personalized learning needs of all. Short and focused gamified assessments help to deliver formal training and reinforce knowledge. Ultimately, this enables the learners to develop new skills, engage more, and perform better.
In a nutshell, the personalization of eLearning via gamification solutions optimizes experience, meets employees’ skill gaps, and overall engagement.
