Virtually There: Gamifying Your Virtual Classroom

InSync Training

All of your game's prompts or "missions" should be identical to real-world skills/learning objectives. As virtual classroom design techniques evolve, it is natural for organizations to want to include the newest design trends in their programs. With the very social/collaborative nature of the virtual classroom, it’s understandable that gamification of these designs seems such a good fit. The key is to make sure you never lose sight of your learning objectives.

Lesson Learned: Virtual Facilitation is DIFFERENT Than Traditional Facilitation

InSync Training

In August, we celebrate virtual classroom facilitators. You’ve been teaching marathon sessions that weren’t designed for the virtual environment, often in platforms you haven’t used before.

No - virtual facilitation is NOT the same as face to face training.

Virtual Worlds Value Proposition

Clark Quinn

In prepping for tomorrow nights #lrnchat, Marcia Conner was asking about the value proposition of virtual worlds. I ripped out a screed and lobbed it, but thought I’d share it here as well: At core, I believe the essential affordances of the virtual world are 3D/spatial, and social. So, for formal learning in particular domains, virtual environments really make a lot of sense. Tags: mobile social virtual worlds

Classes in 3D Worlds and About 3D Worlds.

Virtual Worlds in Learning

Bottom-Line Performance

The first few posts will be about how virtual worlds are being used. Like those cool gadgets in the December catalogs, though, we might well ask whether virtual worlds are something that will fit into our everyday lives (like my ipod), or something that will end up taking up closet space (like, well, my husband’s ipod). Accenture also did a study on virtual worlds in training. Have you ever used a virtual world in your organization?

And, as with some other endeavors, I’ve been using some tools to make this work.

Answering Some Virtual World Questions

Kapp Notes

The metrics or measurements we need to use in 3D virtual immersive environments must be the same we use in physical environments. We must tie virtual world training events to real world outcomes and that requires pre- and post-test measuring with a comparison to gage impact of the 3D virtual world intervention. We can’t use paper and pencil assessment to measure virtual world outcomes, instead we must.
