New Feature Just Released - Gamification & Badging

  • February 16, 2021

Performing thorough training tacking and getting staff to engage and participate in training can be a challenge. Over the years, learning management systems have provided many solutions to make this process easier. However, many team members find training boring and don’t retain a lot of the information they receive during sessions.

To fix this, we released a new gamification and badging feature as part of our VAIRKKO learning management system (LMS). This feature is free of charge and is now available to all existing and future clients.

We believe that gamification and badging can improve team member engagement and knowledge retention while providing LMS administrators and staff with a powerful dashboard that shows every team member’s accomplishments. Viewing badges in one intuitive screen can be a major motivational factor for everyone to work hard to meet training objectives. In this blog, we’ll cover the basics of gamification and badges and how these tools can help your company train smarter and better.

Whether it be an imposition of pandemic or simply a job perk, there's no denying the surge of remote work opportunities as we near the halfway point of 2020. As this trend continues, many employers are beginning to find that there is an increasing need for eLearning within their organization.
