Research has demonstrated that students perform better when they’re rewarded for achieving a course’s learning objective. While it is the instructor’s job to establish a student-centered approach in the learning process of any student, it only becomes more helpful when the process rewards the student for their attention, focus, and high-level critical thinking skills.
Active learning is the key to success.
Active learning asks students to participate in learning sessions as opposed to sitting and listening quietly. In order to promote active learning, organizations and institutions have turned towards integrating hands-on activities and experiential learning events into lectures, lessons, and courses.
Gamification goes a step further – Gamification is the science of applying game elements (point scoring, competitive rules, awarding badges, and ranks) to areas that require user engagement. Since educational activities require students to participate, gamification is the perfect strategy to encourage students to achieve their learning objectives.
Learning management systems – the most efficient way for teaching and training students
One of the best ways to teach online is through a Learning Management System or LMS. LMS allows people to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, and assess student performance.
A learning management system also provides students with the ability to use interactive features such as threaded discussions, video conferencing, and discussion forums.
Some of the most popular online LMS include Tutor LMS, LearnDash, and TalentLMS. They give users the ability to create courses, quizzes, and lessons online and keep track of student performance.
How to add gamification to learning management systems?
Adding gamification to your LMS is the right step towards teaching with a student-first approach. Not only will your student engage more with your content, but they will also challenge themselves to get a higher level of accomplishment.
