Gamification elements for the learning management system ILIAS

E-Learning measures can provide tremendous advantages for an enterprise, if they are implemented and executed properly. The competencies of the employees improve, workflows are understood and followed and the company´s overall efficiency rises. The business objectives will be achieved faster or even exceeded.

But it is not enough that courses are well-built and technically flawless for e-learning measures to be effective. The key factor is the learner himself: Without the willingness for self-learning and the acceptance for the training program, it can´t be successful.

Therefore, ILT Solutions focusses strongly on the target group´s motivation in their training concepts.

To establish a high motivation, the following factors should be given:

  • Clear arrangement and a clear navigation structure
  • Appealing graphic design of courses and learning platforms
  • Balanced proportion of images and text
  • Implementation of a variety of media
  • Implementaton of tests and quizzes
  • Adaptive content for a better orientation based on previous knowledge
  • Playful elements (Gamification)

Especially when imparting dry knowledge, it is necessary to present the learning matter in an attractive way to avoid boredom or reluctance on the learner´s side. The use of playful elements has proven especially effective in practice. The possibilities range from a simple quiz to the transformation of the whole learning platform into a gaming environment.

For the "ILIAS" learning management system ILT Solutions developed an innovative navigation in the form of a map, that is loosely based on the game classic "SimCity".

The course units are represented by houses on this map. Several houses form a settlement, that represents a topic. Courses can be selected either directly or topic-related. Clicking on "target group" highlights the learning modules, that are relevant for the specific target group.

Alternatively, there is also the option to create individual learning paths. A specific succession of courses is determined for the individual learner to work on. The learning path is depicted on the map as a car driving on the set route.

Together with the certification of training successes, the town map addon presents the possibility to achieve a significant increase of learning motivation with relatively low effort.
