Gamification Done Right: 5 Do’s and Don’ts

Gamification 5 Dos and Donts

Are you planning to incorporate gamification into your learning and training strategies? If so, how are you going to approach it? 

There are numerous methods for incorporating games and gaming elements into your online learning. You can integrate leaderboards, badges, challenges, and simulations! But just because gamification is a great addition to your learning strategies, that doesn’t mean it is simple to adopt or to implement. 

To guide your -gamification efforts, we have provided a simple infographic that summarises the do’s and don’ts when gamifying your training programmes.


Before adding a point system or a challenge and calling it a day, consider whether it fits your learning objectives and whether it will help your learners reach their goals. Remember, gamification is not that simple. If done incorrectly, it can have a significant negative impact on the learning experience. Or worse, it can undermine the effectiveness of your entire training programme! 

Hopefully, the infographic we provided can help you develop a winning gamification strategy that will benefit both your organisation and your learners.
