NEW YORK (PRWEB) February 05, 2018
The Training Arcade™, a game authoring tool, has been named to the Training Industry’s “Top 20 Authoring Tools Companies” List of 2018. The Training Arcade™ is a library of fun and effective training games with an integrated do-it-yourself game builder, robust analytics dashboard, and player leaderboard. The tool is so intuitive and easy to use that learning professionals of all skill levels can build and launch training games in just minutes.
Joseph McDonald, Managing Partner and Head of Production, commented, “Learning professionals have long recognized that games increase engagement and improve results. But games require thoughtful design, software development, content and systems integration and good analytics to be a truly effective learning compliment. To do that right requires time and budget, which are often both under pressure. So we built The Training Arcade to handle all of the complex software development, game design and system integration out of the box which enables learning professionals to do what they do best, build great curriculum.”
Over two years in development, The Training Arcade™ has scaled its user base and has a growing partner/resellers program. It has already changed the training landscape and has given IDs everywhere the ability to build games quickly and effectively, and has dozens of companies deploying high-end, customizable game templates. The Training Arcade turns assessments into fun training reinforcement tools, driving higher engagement, improved comprehension, and greater retention making it the ultimate playground for employees to practice what they have learned and providing employers a robust analytics dashboard to access learning behaviors, gaps and successes.
Annual subscriptions to The Training Arcade™ are available by the single game at $1,000 each or a 4-pack of games at $2,500. During the subscription, each game can be deployed an unlimited number of times to an unlimited number of employees. The games are SCORM compliant for quick integration into an LMS and can be easily plugged into many eLearning authoring tools.
Managing Partner and Head of Creative Services and Innovation at The Game Agency, Stephen Baer, added, “Today, nearly every company sees learning and development as a cost center. When run effectively, however, it can be the most critical function in driving performance, competitive advantage, and profit to a business. Our games turn passive content delivery into active learning resulting in improved learning outcomes and training ROI. We are honored to have The Training Arcade™ recognized by the Training Industry and look forward to helping our customers exceed their training goals well into the future.”
