The Differences Between Gamification and Game-Based Learning
We often see people getting confused between gamification and game-based learning. However, the objectives, results, and implementation methods of each one are totally different. Gamification strategies are increasingly getting attention and investment in eLearning. In today’s high-pressure world, when everyone is working tight schedules, we tend to learn well only when it’s enjoyable or obviously beneficial to us – and games definitely make the learning more enjoyable. According to Engagement Alliance, the gamification industry is predicted to reach $5.5 billion by 2018. Games keep learners engaged and motivated – 80% of learners feel that game-like learning or jobs could make them more productive (Talent LMS).
