Getting the Facts on Game-Based Learning

Getting the Facts on Game Based Learning (INFOGRAPHIC)

The Knowledge Guru team knows how effective serious games and game based learning are, that’s why we’ve developed an entire learning game engine focused on making game based learning easier to implement. But some people are still on the fence about using games for learning. After all, compliance training isn’t supposed to be entertaining, right?

We know that if everyone had the information we have— if they could see our successful case studies and hear what those learners had to say— then they would realize the true efficacy of game based learning. That’s why we’ve whipped up this detailed infographic to break down the facts on game based learning and serious games, and why they should be your next learning solution.

      Thanks so much! Your work has been extremely helpful to us as we have implemented more and more games with our clients. Couldn’t have made the infographic without you.

    I think learning games can be useful if used properly. On one hand they offer a non-traditional way of picking up a certain skill or some knowledge but on the other hand they stop people from trying harder to pick up something. Learning is a complex process and one should read, listen, talk, watch videos, take notes and play games to really learn anything. Also revising is essential and without it it is not possible to get sustainable results. But your infographic is nice and clear and there is lots of true information in it. Keep up the great work..

    Wow what a great graphic! It truly speaks to the importance of gamification. Because we are living in a digital age that is constantly changing, it’s important to start adopting new techniques in order to connect with the new digital employee of our generation. My favorite part about gamification is the ability it has to motivate employees while allowing them to retain key information. Why not make learning fun?! Wheeldo, a company that allows businesses to create social games in minutes, agrees with the need to learn in fun ways. Want to learn more about Wheeldo?
