Traditional methods of education are giving way to technological advances in many areas, not the least of which is the corporate world. Businesses are using simulations, serious games, and gamification to enhance the training experience of their employees and to effectively prepare them for the work they do.
Games aren’t right for teaching every skill and process, but they can add a human element to education that is lacking in more conventional training programs. Serious games can address social skills and attitudes, as well as concrete procedures. There is an abundance of other reasons to use eLearning games.
While there is a whole host of reasons why serious educational games are a very successful way to train employees, here are five that stand out as the most important considerations.
Serious educational games reach learners on a deeper level than traditional methods can. The key to any successful learning experience is allowing learners the freedom to explore, question, and really contemplate the information presented to them. The benefits reach beyond just the employees but extend to the business as a whole and the clients and customers they serve.
