Gamification in training: The key to engaging and effective

Imagine employees ditching the yawn for the ‘wow’ as they tackle training with the thrill of a game. Gamification in e-learning is transforming corporate training, making it engaging, effective, and unforgettable.

⚡So, what is gamification?

Gamification in e-learning is using game theory and game mechanics, such as point systems, earned badges, and leveled tiers, in e-learning courses to engage and motivate your learners. For instance, gamification can utilize VR technology to create immersive training scenarios where employees can role-play, face realistic challenges, answer questions to earn points, and climb virtual leaderboards.

90% of companies will use e-learning as a corporate training tool in 2020. As yearly trends show, this percentage is only going to keep rising, along with the need to keep the learning process fresh and interesting for learners.


– Boosts knowledge retention

Gamification makes employee learning fun and effective by attracting, motivating, challenging, and empowering them. It’s like playing a well-designed game: you’re hooked on exciting tasks, driven to improve by clear goals and remember what you learn through engaging activities. 

– Drives deeper engagement with the training material

Gamification is more than entertainment; it leads to deeper engagement, better retention, and changes in behavior. Learners explore concepts, make strategic decisions, receive immediate feedback, and re-engage after unsuccessful attempts.
