Our training games are deployed in over 100 countries and in 20+ languages. Our enterprise grade software systems are used by tens of millions of customers across the globe. Read more about our story here.
How customized can the game be?
We can create a gamified desktop game, mobile app or VR experience from the ground up or we can “reskin” one of our games from The Training Arcade® (our game-authoring tool) with your branding. Our team of developers, digital illustrators, and project managers are here to bring your vision to life.
Why do games make effective training tools?
Games provide a place for learners to actively engage with their learning material. Games tap into learner’s intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and provides feedback, recognition and rewards along the way. Games encourage learners to return repeatedly to increase their score and move up the leaderboard. Games can also be played easily with a mobile phone or tablet which is perfect for live conferences and teams who travel frequently.
Is there a DIY option or Can I create a game myself?
Yes! The Training Arcade® is a DIY Game Authoring Tool with a library of 8 training games that can be rapidly deployed in 16 languages with any content in minutes (no coding required). This platform works seamlessly across mobile, tablet, PC, and touchscreen devices and can be used for eLearning, instructor led training, and live events.
Games make the training more fun and engaging. They provide a “practice playground” for your team to fail and learn in a safe place. Games also provide data that helps you understand where there may be gaps in the learning.
Since game play is active rather than passive, learners are naturally more engaged as they want to win. Games encourage learners to return repeatedly to increase their score and move up the leaderboard. How many times do you hear about your learners returning over and over again to your PowerPoint presentation or training manual?
The analytics dashboard in a custom game or in a game in The Training Arcade® is engineered to unveil patterns of individual and group engagement with your material, thereby improving your training ROI by revealing knowledge gaps, personality behaviors, and group comparison. Sort topline data including the number of users, scores, rank, sessions, session duration, % of questions correct / incorrect, and total questions answered.
We take security quite seriously, We offer single sign-on integration (SAML & OKTA) and user authentication. We also offer Enterprise security functionality (cloud-based SaaS platform with unlimited storage and bandwidth, daily database backups, redundant infrastructure, and 24-hour monitoring).
