5 Ways Gamification in Higher Education Improves Student Learning


 

Growing evidence shows a significant link between repetitive practice, content retention, and academic performance—which is why forward-thinking institutions are looking for concrete ways to jumpstart learners' comprehension, intuition, and long-term retention abilities.

Serious games can help. Designed to primarily educate and secondarily entertain, serious games place users in an environment where "play" leads to skill development. Serious games and gamified learning environments establish game-based problem-solving parameters within non-game contexts, enhancing professional development and educational content mastery, and promoting learners' problem-solving and cognitive learning skills.
