Level Up Your Gamification With Design Thinking

Feb 07, 2023
Many employees have endured misguided attempts at gamification, suffering through mandatory training with points and badges described as fun. In addition, the steep costs of building a modern gamified learning system discourage some from designing engaging tools. But what if we’re wrong about what really goes into building a great gamified learning experience? In this session, we’ll discuss common misconceptions around gamification in L&D and learn how design thinking can revive gamification, turning it into a meaningful learning experience.
