What You Should Know About Employee Engagement and Game Based Learning
Think about the corporate negotiation training you’ve had in the past. You probably spent the majority of your time listening to a lecture, clicking through text screens, or watching a video. Now imagine if you could instead hone your negotiation skills in a complex, hands-on environment with constant personalized feedback and reinforcement. Wouldn’t you choose the latter?
Traditional Corporate Training Courses Are Boring
The truth is that most corporate training courses are boring, and employees spend most of their time listening to a lecture rather than practicing their negotiation and leadership skills. This generally translates into a poor experience for your employees, and they often leave training feeling as though it was all just a big waste of time or of limited practical value.
Game Based Learning is Different
On the other hand, game based learning tends to receive an overwhelmingly positive response from learners. Upon completion of the course, a European game-based course developer reports that—out of over 30,000 participants—the vast majority of learners:
- Rated the experience highly overall.
- Felt the course had a high educational value.
- Would recommend the online training course to others.
- Felt that the training they received was applicable to real-world concerns and situations.
Additionally, the game-based training courses showed extremely high completion rates, with over 90% of participants going on to ultimately finish the training.
