Creativity, problem solving, critical and analytical thinking, decision making, risk taking, all are found in game-based learning.

We believe that game-based learning, when implemented correctly, has better impact on learners than sugar-coated gaming interventions.
If your answer to any of these questions is "yes" then you are yet to benefit fully from game thinking and apt game-based training interventions.
Studies (particularly, those conducted in the field of cognitive sciences) reveal that games have a remarkable ability to engage long-term memory. A second critical factor is that games stimulate the learners’ mind by requiring them to perform multiple numerous tasks simultaneously.
We believe that game-based learning, driven by action-centric approach instead of content-centric approach, will make the learning more effective and memorable. In action-centric game, learners perform meaningful actions instead of earning points just for the sake of it.
We believe in a customized approach to game-based learning
Instructional designers tend to add games in courses to make these more interesting. Sometimes, assessments are gamified to make it more "fun". Doing something for the sake of doing will never yield the right results. We believe in game thinking which means we provide a solution by asking the right questions. The solution should help learner understand the content better and lead to better performance.
Action-centric approach calls for meaningful actions by the learners leading to effective learning
When developing a game-based solution, we ask ourselves, “Will this work in improving learners’ performance?" "Will the learners think that the content has only been sugar-coated by meaningless games?" We focus on the actions that learners will perform while taking the course rather than the content itself. This approach has helped learners perform better.
Game-based learning that works on various devices
With the power of Mobile learning increasing day by day, it is imperative that learners can access games on different devices, such as desktops, tablets and smartphones.
