Video games and the corporate world have very little in common, except high adrenaline and cut-throat competition. Is there any way to pull these aspects into compliance online training, making it effective and fun too? In this article, I’ll share 6 tips to transform compliance online training courses into interactive serious games.
Work and play may seem to mix like oil and water, especially in issues of compliance. It feels more like a minefield where any infraction leads to a fine, as employees must be able to see the gravity of the situation and the consequences that rule-breaking brings.
Suffice to say, compliance is a serious issue that can cost your organization millions of dollars in penalties. Not to mention, diminished credibility and reputation. But one way to get corporate learners to take compliance online training seriously is turning it into a carefully crafted serious game that imparts the key takeaways and breathes new life into dull topics. Here are 6 tips to convert your compliance online training course through the power of characters, storylines, and game mechanics.
Gamification is one of the most effective forms of learning, and it’s easily applied to compliance online training. Incorporate real-time feedback for instant gratification. Transfer physical manuals into dazzling virtual multimedia experiences. Create realistic storylines with relatable role-player characters that employees can choose from. Replace question-answer tests with contextual scenarios that corporate learners have to ‘live through’ as in-game experiences. Offer easy referencing through keyword-based infographics. And let the games begin.
