Games and gamification and coding, oh my! It all sounds like a lot, but it’s really not. Sure, you can invest huge amounts of time and budget into a custom solution, but maybe you need a game today to turn that slide deck into an engaging activity.
Enter, The Training Arcade®.
The Training Arcade is our collection of ten different game templates that allow you to quickly and easily add your own training content into a learning game in minutes. No coding required.

Easy to Build Training Games
Employee training is expensive and, often, the return on investment (ROI) doesn’t exist. The Association for Talent Development (ATD) estimates that companies spent an average of $1,273 per year per employee on training. However, without “practical follow-up or meaningful assessments,” learners lose 90% of the skills they learn in those training programs. That’s a lot of money to throw out the window.
Gamified training engages learners, increases attention, improves confidence and, ultimately, drives success.
We created The Training Arcade with this idea in mind: help trainers gamify their training quickly and easily with a tool that’s easy to use and doesn’t break the budget.
Game Templates in The Training Arcade
When we say there’s no coding involved, we really mean it. Simply copy and paste or type in your content directly into one of our ten different game templates.
Truly, the most time-consuming aspect of all of this is creating the content! Once the content is done, to build a JEOPARDY!® game with, say, thirteen clues like the one we’ll talk about in a moment takes about fifteen minutes.
That’s it. In fifteen minutes, you can go from questions on a word document to a fully working, gamified learning experience.
In addition, all it takes to share the game with your learners is a URL that’s automatically generated for your game. You can also SCORM wrap games into your LMS, or embed them into your website or wherever you wish.
The Training Arcade is not an app, plugin, or anything that needs to be downloaded or installed. All you and your learners need is a web-connected device, and you and your learners are off to gamified learning.
Watch Your Content Come to Life
Let’s take a look at a few “before and after” screenshots from The Training Arcade. Meaning, let’s see what clues/training material looks like when you create the game versus what it looks like presented to the player.
Below is a JEOPARDY!® game board created on the admin side of The Training Arcade:
Here’s what that same board looks like to the player.
Pretty cool, huh? If I want, I could easily add more categories (columns) or clues (rows) with just the push of a button. I can remove rows and columns just as easily.
Here’s what a finished clue looks like to the admin:
And here’s what that same clue looks like to the player:
Then, possible answers are shown – they picked the correct answer! – and feedback is given to the player instantly before returning them to the board to continue the game.
Voila! With no coding or crazy computer magic, you’re able to write in or copy and paste your training material into a game template that looks, feels, and plays just like the TV show so many people are familiar with.
