Unicorn and Amuzo Ask ‘Learning Games – You Cannot Be Serious!’ at LT15
Ever wondered how games could fit into your learning strategy?
Unicorn Training are delighted to announce that Mike Hawkyard, MD of Unicorn’s educational games partners, Amuzo, will deliver a seminar on ‘Learning Games – You Cannot Be Serious!’ at Learning Technologies on Wednesday 28 January.
Games and gamification are the fastest growth areas in learning and development and Mike will be looking at how businesses are unlocking game qualities such as problem solving, in-play feedback, rewards, leaderboards and, of course, fun, to bring about effective learning and changes in behaviours and culture.
Award-winning eLearning specialists Unicorn and chart-topping game studio Amuzo have joined forces to bring World Class mobile and cross-platform game experience to educational games for the corporate sector.
Mike said: “Amuzo has a proven track record in producing amazing games across many platforms. We focus on engagement, retention and most importantly, fun.
“Games present players a clear set of goals and a ruleset that must be followed in order to achieve them. They offer instructions, rewards, challenges and upgrades to keep users motivated in their quest. When people fail, they don’t think twice about pressing ‘replay’ to improve performance and try again.”
Peter Phillips, Unicorn Training CEO, added: “We have always been committed to action learning. By investing in a leading games company we are demonstrating that we are serious about serious games.
“Amuzo are World Class game developers and publishers with priceless experience of creating and developing some of the most iconic games of the last 15 years within their team. Their creativity, skills and knowledge complement our own proven record in creating learning that gets results.”
