SERIOUS GAMES

Training & Adoption

The digital revolution has created a new breed of connected employees, for whom multi-sensory engagement has become the norm. With organizations now challenged to find new and interesting ways to engage this connected workforce, serious games can provide a powerful and effective approach to transformation, learning and skills development.

 

In addition to becoming more widespread across corporate organisations, serious games are also being widely used in emergency services, military and even healthcare training. The virtual nature of serious games provides an exciting way to communicate content, perform training, model infrastructures and visualize processes.

 

INMEET CMS believes that serious games have the power of visualizing things, of creating open-ended environments for people to explore things, of engaging and motivating learners. Serious games should be added to the educator’s toolbox, to help tackle intractable problems and achieve big changes.
