De facto new leader of US Moodle Partners, eThink Education continues its lunge forward. The latest leap: customers will soon be able to access game-based learning solution The Training Arcade right from their Moodle pages. A press release officially announced the partnership with developer The Game Agency.
The Training Agency is described as incorporating “7 unique game mechanics, 15 languages, an analytics dashboard, leaderboard, and SCORM packages” all accessible from Moodle. The Training Arcade’s activities are described as “fun,” “competitive” and “social,” and its implementation in learning should contribute to engagement and knowledge retention. Its most common uses include “onboarding, sales and product training, leadership development, safety, security, compliance, systems & processes, customer service.” Users of eThink-supported Moodle sites will be able to author, customize and embed all seven games within their courses.
The Game Agency offers game-based learning for mobile, LMS and standalone systems in the US, from K-12 to Fortune-500. It claims an acquired expertise on “eLearning, instructor-led training and microlearning.” See their game portfolio and learn more here.
