eLearning gamification is the application of game elements and gaming techniques to non-game elements, such as online learning content, in an effort to make it fun and engaging. In other words, it’s the use of game mechanics to encourage learners to explore and learn as they move toward an end goal.
Gamification is an excellent motivational tool for learners, as it challenges them to achieve the learning objectives. Gamification goes beyond physical rewards and promotes a mindset of constant achievement. When the goals of the learners are defined, numerous, and most importantly, measured, the learners will be more motivated to reach them.
In the field of online education, Gamification is used to promote the commitment of employees and students to the learning process.
