Change is the only constant and the past year has brought about plenty of it. Investing in employees and keeping their skill sets updated is as important today as it was yesterday but the means of training have evolved. In-classroom workshops are passe. Getting everyone together at the same time is a huge challenge and online mobile training has advantages that can’t compare to these traditional training modules. If you haven’t already made the switch, here are a few reasons you need to start using a gamified content creation tool.
Shorter modules are easier to absorb
We don’t have the attention span to listen to an hour-long lecture and absorb everything that was said. With gamified content on mobile training modules, the content is broken up into several small, short modules. The same content can be presented in many different ways – it could be a webinar, infographics, a written essay, etc. This allows all the trainees to learn in a way that suits them the most – some prefer to watch a video demonstration while others prefer to understand the theory first and then practice on their own. You can cater to everyone’ preferences without any extra work.
Gamified content is more engaging
Talking of attention spans, sometimes staying focused on a talk for even 2 minutes seems challenging. Trainees may be tempted to give up on the modules. There’s no sense in attending aa workshop if you don’t retain any of the knowledge. But, by using a gamified content creation tool, you can fight this and make learning feel engaging and interesting. For example, a leaderboard could show a visual representation of all the employee’s training progress to encourage those who have fallen back to push themselves a little more. Progress boards within each module can tell the individual how much of the training has been completed and how much is left so they can stay motivated to keep learning. It also makes all the participants more competitive towards the training.
It can be accessed at any time from any where
The trouble with in-class workshops is that people must stop whatever they’re doing to attend the workshop. The workshops may be in the middle of a project and halt their work. What’s worse, the training workshop being attended at the time may not be relevant to just then. It’s not the best use of an employee’s time. On the other hand, mobile learning makes training accessible to employees at a time and place that suits them. They could even complete a module while they’re commuting to work!
There are countless advantages to using a gamified content creation tool. It allows participants to learn at their own pace and at a time and place of their choosing instead of taking time out when you’re in the middle of a project. There are plenty of tools available but not all of them are the same. Look for tools that are versatile and easy to incorporate into your learning plan. It’s a plan that benefits both the employer and the employee.
