“By 2014, more than 70% of Global 2000 organizations will have at least one gamified application.”
- Gartner Research

In a sequel to Intrepid Learning’s popular webinar Make Learning Stick: How Games Help Improve Performance, Tyler Whitworth, Director of Product Management, teams up with Jason Gorfine, resident customer experience and user interface expert, to take a deep dive into the eight principles of HOW games help us learn. Join them for an examination of how “gamifying” a concept can turn obligatory, less-that-exciting tasks from mind-numbing to manageable (and maybe even fun).
Tyler and Jason will cover a brief history of humanity’s affinity for games, give an overview of the importance of gaming, and take a tour through the eight principles of learning (with corresponding real-world examples):

  • Engagement
  • Reinforcing Behavior
  • Active Participation
  • Emotional Appeal
  • Feedback
  • Skills Practice
  • Teamwork
  • and last, but not least… Fun!

Attend this webinar if you want to:

  • Enable people in your organization to acquire new skills and improve performance by applying gaming principles
  • Have an opportunity to ask experts about their experience creating games for clients
  • Get a unique insight into what it really means to combine games and learning
