When Remembering Really Matters: The Power of Serious Games for Learning (Free Webinar)

How confident are you that learners really remember what they learn from training delivered in your organization? Research has shown time and time again that remembering is hard and forgetting is easy. So how do you combat this all-to-common problem with training? That’s what this webinar is all about.

Sharon Boller, President and Chief Product Officer, and Steven Boller, Marketing Director, are delivering a jam-packed session through Training Magazine Network where they demonstrate research-based strategies for retention—and how they relate to games. If it’s important for your employees to be able to recall information from your training (which they should be able to do, or why spend money on training at all?), then you can’t afford to miss the information in this webinar.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 10:00AM Pacific / 1:00PM Eastern (60-Minute Session). Click here to register now!

Can’t attend? Register anyway. We’ll send you the recording and materials after the event.

Sharon and Steve will explain how games can help form long-term memories… and business results. And since everything we do is grounded in research, they’ll provide recent research on games and case studies that demonstrate how games can be used for learning.

In this session, you will:

  • Identify the potential costs of not remembering
  • Gain an understanding of research-based learning principles such as spaced repetition, feedback loops and more
  • Identify the connection between research-based learning methods and tangible business outcomes

PLUS! Attendees will be entered to win a free “starter” package for use in your organization and – after the webinar – are invited to remain for a focused exploration of the game-creation platform, Knowledge Guru.
