Gaming in Training

This blog provides a revolutionary way of using gamification elements in your E-Learning course - by taking instructional theories straight from video games. I look at how you can boost engagement within your courses and improve your Instructional Design approach. The posts featured on the site contain a mix of What We Can Learn from Games and Bitesize Tips. I dissect how video games portray information to players and how we can take advantage of these methods in E-Learning. Some examples include: Choices and Decisions in E-Learning - What We Can Learn From The Walking Dead (Video Game) Series and What We Can Learn from The Legend of Zelda.
