Online Learning Minute: Game Based Learning

 

Video game popularity has soared in the last decade, as billions around the globe gravitate toward the captivating activity.

But video games aren’t just for entertainment.

They can also be educational. On today’s Online Learning Minute with host Brian Runo, we learn what game-based learning is and how it differs from gamification.

The math-based computer games of our youth are just one example of game-based learning, or a course built inside of a game. Gamification, however, uses gaming principles like rewards, badges or peer competition as elements to an online course.

Game-based learning helps students stay engaged and makes learning fun. This alternative form of education is effective in some subjects, but not practical in all use cases.
