Morsels of learning: about micro-learning and gamification

Micro learning breaks learning into small bites, replacing or complementing long-form training and learning. It uses small, well-planned units, to deliver training and learning to users, when and where they want it.
With our attention becoming similar to that of a goldfish, micro-learning helps in training and information retention. It also works well with gamification implementations, with micro learning being recognized and prompted contextually.

From the Adventures of You to eLearning Gamification

Remember Edward Packard’s “Choose your own adventure” series back in the late 70’s? First published as the “Adventures of You” series, the series ushered in a wave of interactive gamebooks. The books’ readers would assume the role of the plot’s hero and make choices that would determine the protagonist’s action and plot outcome.
We think that the same logic and emotional drivers should be part of elearning gamification. Here’s how.

Re-Inventing Learnification and Knowledge Collaboration: An Interview with Dr. Eran Gal

We asked Dr. Gal to share his insights about what motivates employees, what types of gamification work better than others and what obstacles a company might confront when implementing gamification. Since Dr. Gal is an e-Learning expert, the focus of the interview was on Learnification. Learnification means using Gamification techniques for the purposes of training or employee on-boarding; the use of game mechanics promotes learning, review of materials and encourages a sense of completion. It also provides clear calls-to-action during the process of learning, and is more effective than traditional methods. By creating inherent incentives to learn, implementation of learnification projects promotes better employee knowledge and satisfaction.
