Get inspired for your next elearning game with excerpts from interviews and talks with a range of experts from the world of elearning games.
This episode follows up on #gameweek, our annual focus on games and gamification in digital learning. We hear from a range of experts and elearning creators on how to use game based learning to promote engagement and get results from your learners.
As an introduction Sponge UK's Louise Pasterfield, talking in a webinar for the Learning and Skills Group , explains where games can be most useful in digital learning.
There are many ways to create games or add gamified elements to an online training course, and one of the most common is using an elearning authoring tool. Articulate's Tom Kuhlman spoke to us in 2015 about some of the pitfalls of using game elements within an elearning tool.
We caught up more recently with Sponge UK's learning game designer Jason Butler when we were talking about Adapt , a software framework that makes it easier to create one course that can be accessed on many different devices. He gives us the low down on whether a game can be integrated with an Adapt course.
So you've got different options for building the games themselves, but how do you go about tackling the design process if you haven't taken on an elearning game before? Louise Pasterfield takes us through the differences between traditional elearning design and creating a game experience.
Gamification consultant Pete Jenkins spoke to us last week and brought up some interesting examples of how gamification is getting real results. We asked him how L&D can prove the link between gamified initiatives, learning outcomes and business results.
To wrap up the special #gameweek podcats Professor Karl Kapp, author, consultant and guest on our gameweek hangout has some advice on how to evaluate how well games are working for your learners.
