Learners are distracted with daily competing priorities and struggle to retain information presented through digital learning. Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve shows that retention rates are abysmal. Educators and instructional designers are pressed for time and resources to deliver learning that maximizes retention and desired outcomes.

What’s the good news? You can leverage neuroscience and seven fundamental game mechanics to combat the forgetting curve! In this session, you will learn how to apply seven simple techniques in your eLearning projects to naturally boost your learners’ dopamine and enable them to learn more effectively. Explore how to leverage scientific knowledge of the neurochemical dopamine, which is linked to the reward centers of the brain. Research shows that higher levels of dopamine enhance confidence, memory, and learning. Prime your audience for success. Give your learners a turbo boost!

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to apply game mechanics to your eLearning projects
