    Our World of Learning serious game

    To illustrate the concept, those attending were invited to play our World of Learning Challenge, then the results were shared live with insights from the audience's game play.

    The showcased game was based around appropriate use of personal information and social media in the workplace.  Those who score high enough will earn an "I Love Learning" t-shirt.


    Want to find out more about Serious Games?

    Skillcast clients, including Royal Mail have found games to be incredibly useful in helping to identify strengths and weaknesses as well as offering a clear focus for future initiatives.

    Our serious games are scenario-based, in which your employees are presented with challenging propositions in a realistic context. They can accept or reject each proposition with a click or swipe as they try to answer questions within the time limit without losing any lives. It is a fun way to reinforce the serious training that employees receive.

    Serious games have been proven to drive behavioural change and improve knowledge retention. A quiz is just one example of a kind of a serious game, and can be a great asset to support compliance e-learning. Most people love a quiz. They make people think and add an element of competition, which drives up motivation levels.
