Podcast 61 — How can L&D use games in elearning?

Are games in elearning a powerful tool for engaging learners or a gimmick that turns them off? Maybe they’re a bit of both?

This week on the GoodPractice Podcast, Emma Barrow from Yorkshire Building Society joins James McLuckie, Ross Garner and Eoghan Scott from the GoodPractice team to discuss elearning games.

Show notes

Ross had to Google the ZX Spectrum after recording this episode, so here is the Wikipedia page if you’re interested in doing the same: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX_Spectrum

The podcast Ross recommended, and where he got the definition of ‘diurnal’ from, was No Such Thing As A Fish: http://qi.com/podcast

And Eoghan’s fact about Edinburgh property prices was covered by the Scotsman: http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/homes-gardens/how-much-do-you-need-to-earn-an-hour-to-buy-in-each-edinburgh-postcode-1-4539977
