Early arcade games didn’t offer jaw dropping photorealistic graphics, high fidelity surround sound, or immersive storylines containing characters voiced by Hollywood stars. Yet many of us whiled away hour after hour playing these addictive monochrome masterpieces. Why? Because of something called game mechanics; the techniques used to keep people coming back again and again. Use these approaches in your elearning and you’re playing gamification right.
So what are these techniques and what do they look like within an elearning environment? City & Guilds Kineo have designed some highly successful games for clients, including one for McDonald’s which just recently won Best Learning Game at the Elearning Age Awards.
