8 Templates to Turbocharge your Microlearning Lessons

The extent of effectiveness of your authoring tool determines the fruitfulness of your microlearning lessons for your employees. Receiving modules as beneficial to them is at the forefront of employees’ priorities, meaning the incorporation of gamification is essential.

Gamification increases employee engagement and boosts productivity by eradicating mental barriers prohibiting the instillment of new knowledge into long-term memory. In other words, gamification has been proven to significantly increase the retention of new knowledge.

Traditional learning processes, such as rote memorisation, have been unsurprisingly neglected by L&D professionals, due to their ineffectiveness and inferiority to the rapid developments in mobile learning technology.

EdApp’s mobile-first, cloud-based authoring tool provides our users with a library filled with an array of effective templates with a touch of gamification for optimal corporate success. Without being facile, traditionally simple games are brought into an effective adult setting to challenge users.

We provide you with exemplifications of gamified lessons in 8 of EdApp’s templates, to turbocharge your employee learning program.

Besides a whole lot of fun, these games have a whole lot more to offer. EdApp’s Brain Boost feature incorporates a spaced learning technique, coined spaced repetition. Information is strategically presented in scientifically-derived intervals, allowing the mind of the learner to engrain new information into long-term memory. In our microlearning modules, Brain Boost does it all for you – automatically formulating spaced repetition in areas the particular learner is struggling with or for more difficult concepts, requiting some extra practice.
