Immersive learning has become a buzzword in the world of education and training, with an increasing number of institutions and corporate organizations adopting it as a method of instruction. With immersive learning, learners are engaged in simulated real-world environments using technologies like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). However, it's not just the technology that makes immersive learning engaging and effective. One key aspect is the use of gamification.

In this blog post, we will explore how Immersive Learning can benefit organizations and how they can adapt it to improve the way their employees are trained.

Digital Twins and Gamification

Digital twins and gamification are two powerful tools that can be combined to create immersive learning experiences. Digital twins provide a virtual representation of real-world objects, environments, and systems, allowing learners to interact with them in a simulated environment.

By combining digital twins and gamification, learners can engage with the learning material in a dynamic and interactive way that promotes knowledge retention and transfer of skills to real-world scenarios.

Benefits of Gamification in Immersive Learning

Gamification has numerous benefits for immersive learning. By incorporating game mechanics such as points, badges, and rewards, immersive learning experiences can be made more engaging and motivating for learners. Gamification also provides opportunities for learners to actively participate and engage with the learning material, promoting greater knowledge retention and transfer of skills to real-world scenarios. Furthermore, the use of game mechanics can create a fun and challenging learning experience that promotes a positive attitude towards learning.

Best Practices for Using Gamification in Immersive Learning

To effectively use gamification in immersive learning, it is imperative to align game mechanics with learning objectives. The learning experience should be challenging but not frustrating for learners, providing them with feedback and opportunities for reflection. Competition and collaboration should be balanced to create a supportive learning environment that encourages learners to work together towards a common goal. By following these best practices, educators and instructional designers can create a more effective and engaging learning experience for their learners.

Examples of Gamification in Immersive Learning

There are many examples of gamification in immersive learning, including VR and AR simulations that allow learners to practice real-world scenarios in a safe environment. The ICL Group was looking for an engaging and entertaining way to host its ESG week with its 15,000 employees partners, and suppliers worldwide. They found the solution by working with Treedis. a SaaS platform for transforming physical spaces into immersive experiences through the power of digital twin technology. Treedis created 12 groundbreaking and immersive experiences, in diverse areas, including diversity and inclusion,  sustainability, compliance, and more.
The experiences integrated multiple innovative solutions, including the Treedis Hub, Experience Creator, CGI solution, and 3D Editor solution, to bring digital twins of ICL factories, wineries, and CGI spaces to life.

The training experience immersed employees in a 3D learning environment and encouraged active participation. Employees could choose and customize their avatars, explore exhibits, and communicate with each other in different environments.

The experiences proved highly engaging, with an average time spent of 13 minutes, a 78% interaction rate with content, and over 13,000 users.

Treedis Immersive Learning Solutions

Gamification is a key component of Treedis' e-learning and onboarding solutions.

Learning is transformed by Treedis solutions that go beyond dull 2D presentations. With the freedom to design engaging, interactive experiences, learners are able to engage with their materials on a whole new level. Treedis' solutions can help learners retain knowledge faster and longer by using gamification and other interactive experiences. By using Treedis' Experience Creator, you can incorporate gamification elements to boost user engagement and retention, improving your message to users. By integrating quizzes, trivia, hints, locks, and scores into Treedis, learners and educators can easily keep track of their progress.

Finally, Treedis' Avatar solution provides the ultimate social experience, adding to the interactive and entertaining feeling of the learning experience. In addition to re-creating social learning experiences between students and employees, removing geographical boundaries and accessibility, The Avatar Solution creates a virtual classroom or training environment that allows learners to interact more deeply with each other and the material.

Conclusion

Gamification is a crucial aspect of immersive learning that can enhance engagement and motivation for learners. By incorporating game mechanics such as points, badges, and rewards, immersive learning experiences can be made more interactive and dynamic. Educators and instructional designers should follow best practices to ensure that gamification is aligned with learning objectives and creates a supportive learning environment. Treedis offers a variety of immersive learning solutions that incorporate gamification features. This provides educators and instructional designers with the tools they need to create engaging and effective learning experiences for their learners.
