Using Games to Make Your Training More Effective

eLearning Rockstars Stage – Using Games to Make Your Training More Effective

by Stephanie Ivec

Karl Kapp, Professor of Instructional Technology and Director of the Institute for Interactive Technologies at Bloomsburg University and Stephen Baer, Managing Partner of The Game Agency, joined forces to present an engaging, interactive session at this year’s DevLearn Expo.

Did you know that employee training expenses in North America exceed $70 billion each year? That’s crazy. What’s also crazy is how much of that learning is passive, dull, and uninteresting—in other words, not effective. Karl and Stephen, both experts in gamification and gamified learning, are passionate about presenting an alternative to this type of training.
