Problem Solving

A key aspect of serious games is having an active role as a learner and achieving clear goals through proven mastery. Your employees can make choices that have different outcomes and impact progress. Learner feedback is communicated through mechanics such as levels, points, lives, and other familiar gaming features, allowing employees to evaluate the decisions made.

Employee Motivation

Science has proven that games help release the feel-good hormone known as dopamine. When your employees accomplish a goal or level up in a serious games training course, this hormone is released and creates an enjoyable training experience. Dopamine spikes highest when learners anticipate receiving a reward, which motivates them to complete training and pursue their learning goals.

Worker Confidence

Serious games build your employees’ confidence by allowing them to practice and make mistakes safely until they attain a specific skill set. The ability to repeat sections and discover the consequences of choices in real-time helps accurate information enter long-term memory and be applied correctly in the workforce.
