Instructional designers tend to think content first and action second. Game designers tend to think action first. As a result, most games are engaging, intriguing, and immersive, while instructional content tends to be boring and perfunctory. Simply changing your mindset from instructional designer to game designer will help you to create engaging and effective instruction.

In this webinar, Karl Kapp will help you make that shift. You’ll learn five methods to help you think like a game designer while playing a game. The experience will help you transform your stale training into an exciting and interesting experience for you learners. And, yes, you will be playing a game during this session.

Over the course of this unique webinar, you will:

  • Create engaging instruction using game design techniques
  • Apply methods for thinking activity first, content second
  • Explore how game designers engage players and immerse them in the game environment
  • Discover how games foster action and activity
