Gamification may sound like something that can be purchased for the X-Box 360 or Playstation 3, but according to Dr. Karl Kapp, it is an area that most instructional designers should focus more efforts on when designing interactive training. Dr. Kapp shared his wonderful insights at a recent ASTD e-learning SIG event on July 19 at the LaSalle campus in Plymouth meeting.

 

Dr. Kapp’s exciting interactive presentation focused on the effectiveness of today’s technology for changing learner behaviors. Dr. Kapp, a professor of instructional technology at BloomsburgUniversity and author of The Gamification of Learning and Instruction, discussed the use of 3D avatars to change learner behaviors; how playing a video game changes a person’s behavior and how storytelling helps learners memorize facts.
