The gamification of training in the corporate world has made the experience richer and deeper for learners. Employees are more invested and are well-prepared to do their jobs and serve customers and clients.
Yu-kai Chou is known as a pioneer of gamification. Yu-kai Chou has created a framework for gamification that has been useful for increasing learner engagement and motivation. It’s called the Octalysis Framework.
The Octalysis Framework is a chart that details the Eight Core Drives of Gamification. The value of this chart is in helping a corporation discover areas where their elearning program may be lacking.

As corporations make decisions about the best training programs to utilize with their workforce, they can use the Octalysis Framework as a guide to make sure the activities they choose aren’t missing any important elements. Keep in mind that every good elearning activity doesn’t have to include all eight of these components. Each learning game or gamification program should be based around the specific objectives and the needs of the individual learners.
