Typical Gamification Applications

Gamification is defined as the application of typical elements of game playing (rules of play, point scoring, competition with others) to other areas of activity. This technology has excellent applications in education and training, specifically engaging users in problem-solving training. In addition to promoting specific learning gains, games are a form of active learning similar to on the job training. In some cases, games include the use of badges – think scouting merit badges in digital form – to promote knowledge retention and recognize competencies in learners.

One specific goal that gamification promise is to deliver a longer-term adherence to the task at hand.  Behavioral scientists’ look at helping people attain better outcomes through design interventions that engage individuals in activities where the likelihood of completion increases through gamification.

Gamification Encouragments

In a world of “encouragements,” these interventions take the form of small changes in context that might have great outcomes. Also, the effects of incentives can often be complemented with feedback that is longer lasting in nature – interventions that increase longer-term adherence to a task at hand. We focus on one such set of interventions collectively in our gamification development.

Gaming today attracts players around a game that requires an incredible amount of intellectual work. When they’re done with the challenge, they will leave the game and go to another game that’s more challenging. Can you imagine if we had that type of investment in a training environment?
