The Gamification Quest

Training a global workforce presents several problems. Sales and technical both need product training, but while their needs differ, there is a significant overlap that blurs the boundaries. The common solution is to create different training for each group, but this is inefficient, and many employees find the need to train in both. Adopting an adaptive design for training allowed the Company to successfully address these issues.

The Gamification Quest

The art history survey course has been recognized as problematic with regard to its lack of innovation and adaptation to educational trends and the evolving landscape of college-level learners. While Yavelberg’s recent dissertation provided broad insight into the faculty perceptions of the course and its outcomes, there has been little effort to gain a researched perception of the course by students. The study gave great insight into student perceptions and the challenges of educational game design.
