STAMFORD, Conn. (PRWEB) September 09, 2020
The Game Agency is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2020 Top Training Companies™ list for the learning experience platform (LXP) sector of the learning and development (L&D) market. Training Industry, the leading research and information resource for corporate learning leaders, curates the Training Industry Top 20 report on critical sectors of the corporate training marketplace to better inform professionals about the best and most innovative providers of training services and technologies.
For almost three years, The Game Agency’s multi-award winning flagship product, The Training Arcade®, has empowered L&D professionals to quickly and effectively deliver engaging gamified learning experiences to their employees. The Training Arcade®, DIY game-authoring tool, features nine game mechanics to keep employees deeply engaged, playing, and learning.
New to The Training Arcade® this September is the exciting “Next Gen” Gamification experience called Arcades™. Arcades is a premium add-on service used to deliver a highly customizable destination for learners to play the games built in The Training Arcade, compete against one another (or their boss!) for recognition and prizes, and collaborate as teams for group awards.
“Over the past 2 ½ years, subscribers to The Training Arcade have been able to quickly create games and export them to any LMS or embed them into their courses or web platforms,” explained Joseph McDonald, Managing Partner and Head of Production at The Game Agency, “the purpose of the technology was to drastically reduce the time it takes to build engaging training games and use them where and when you need them. But we also wanted to create a destination that could provide a home for players and unleash powerful next-gen gamification technology, like Player to Player Challenges, Team Tournaments, Daily Mini-Games, Level-Up and Achievements systems, point tracking via individual game leaderboards and a Global Leaderboard powered by Experience Points earned along the way. So we are thrilled to be launching Arcades™ at a time when organizations are craving new ways to connect team members virtually. Arcades delivers learner engagement and stickiness while providing tremendous data about player usage, knowledge improvement, and behavioral traits.”
