When Remembering Really Matters:
The Power of Serious Games for Learning


President and CEO, Bottom-Line Performance

Webinar Recording Details



Remembering is hard. Forgetting is easy. Employees have to complete a lot of training during the year, so much so that it is simply impossible for them to remember everything that is asked of them. “Processes, policies, terms, Oh My!” While business critical for organizations, so much detail can be overwhelming to learners.

This session shares research on remembering - and forgetting - and identifies techniques that foster long-term retention. It then connects these techniques to games and explains how games can help form long-term memories... and business results. We'll share recent research on games and case studies that demonstrate how games can be used for learning.
In this session, you will:
  • Identify the potential costs of not remembering
  • Gain an understanding of research-based learning principles such as spaced repetition, feedback loops and more
  • Identify the connection between research-based learning methods and tangible business outcomes

Attendees will be entered to win a free "starter" package for use in your organization and – after the webinar - are invited to remain for a focused exploration of the game-creation platform, Knowledge Guru.
