Game based simulations have been found to be effective in creating a deep sense of ownership and ultimately motivating and engaging learners back on the job.
Customized game based simulations usually implement short feedback cycles which enables the players to perceive the impact that their actions have in this world immediately. With the use of various game based elements such as storylines, immersive 3D virtual worlds, levelling up, scores and rewards, the immersion and engagement levels of learners are maintained real high.
