Tesco: Dynamic board game teaches people the knowledge and skills for handling fire safety issues


Why we like it:

  • Demonstrates a range of gaming features such as bonus cards, beat the clock and points board.
  • Easy to consume with the content broken up into 10 mini games.
  • Scenario driven, addressing 10 key core behaviours complying with fire safety regulations.
  • The game should take around one hour to complete fully, with learners achieving a gold, silver or bronze medal for each mini-game. Once a mini-game has been completed, learners will be delivered with end of game feedback.
  • The game engine is adaptable, so different content can be built on it.
  • Runs well on mobile devices and desktops.

Barclays: Digital Driving Licence is an accredited training program for workforce development


Why we like it:

  • Demonstrates a strong partnership model and blended learning.
  • Uses open badges as well as formal accreditation can be used to verify learners’ achievements (a model that offers endorsement as well as accreditation).
  • Offers some gaming devices to make the learning fun – e.g. the use of leaderboards to compare your scores with others on the program.
  • Designed to be “mobile first” (although it works equally well on a desktop).

Channel 4: Learning To Take Risks is an award winning elearning program


Why we like it:

  • Successfully links the “important but dull” messages of compliance to the aspirational goals of taking risks and pushing boundaries.
  • Builds competence, not just compliance by focussing less on knowledge and more on actions.
  • Captures and reflects client culture and brand by using bold images from well-known broadcast output.
  • Uses audio voice-over narration provided by the familiar and popular voice of Channel 4 continuity announcer Corie Brown.
  • Draws on authentic scenarios with video-based ‘mini documentaries’ and dynamic scrolling stories
  • Highly visual learning experience, with minimal text on screen, a simple interface, and contemporary touch-screen design styles. The end result was an attractive and engaging blend of text, graphics, audio and video.
