Gamification in eLearning is fast emerging as an effective technique to engage learners. This can be used to enhance learner engagement in any traditional eLearning course. We create a simulation based, task oriented gamification course, which was interactive and engrossing.
The learners go through a series of gamified activities that map to the required qualities of a given reward category. The activities simulate and reinforce the qualities the individuals have to maintain to win. The scores lead them to gaining the reward.
We provided the learners the choice to seek support while performing the assigned task like in a real life scenario mapping to actual human behavior in such situations. This ensured a true simulated environment to encourage application of knowledge through performance.
This simple Gamification can make a standard eLearning course more fun and engaging.
