L&D Go Beyond Podcast: Gamifying Workplace Learning the Right Way, with Karl Kapp

Written by

In this episode of L&D Go Beyond podcast, Amit Garg speaks with The Gamification Guru – Karl Kapp, about gamifying workplace learning the right way.

Karl begins by highlighting and clarifying the confusion between gamification and game-based learning. He feels that gamification in learning allows learning designers to have transparency in what is being evaluated, how it is being evaluated, and what the goals are. So, if the parameters are reasonable and decided upon in consultation with the learners themselves, gamification can be very helpful and motivating. The podcast is loaded with some great ideas for people starting with gamification initiatives and also for those struggling with different aspects of it.

Here are the key discussion points from this podcast:

  • How gamification is different from games
  • The 3 different gamification types that we can use
  • Using points, badges, and leaderboards more effectively
  • The need to gamify the whole process and not just the end outcome, by focusing on behaviours and elements which enable the overall performance
  • Transitioning from extrinsic to intrinsic motivation
  • Common mistakes while applying gamification to workplace learning and how to avoid them
  • Games as a vehicle for non-linear thinking in unveiling insights for organizations in the competitive marketplace
  • How to convince management for gamification of workplace learning
