Gamification Design Challenge
Who wants to suffer through boring, impersonal e-learning courses that aren’t relevant to their professional lives? Most learners don’t like click-next courses that make them feel invisible or fail to address their specific needs. That’s why engagement and motivation are so important.
Personalize the e-learning experience: Give learners a voice—Ditch the one-size-fits-all course design model by giving learners more control and options to personalize their learning experiences. (Create a sample one to five slide course)
Gamify an Existing E-Learning Course: Gaming elements, such as rewards, points, discovery, and competition, are excellent ways to engage and motivate learners. But the challenge for most course designers is finding practical ways to apply game mechanics without disrupting their existing course design models.
So, how can e-learning designers get started with gamification? What are some practical ways to gamify e-learning courses?
