Just because you can't use words like games and gamification to describe the types of learning experiences you are using, doesn't mean you can't infuse your training with fun, interactivity, and a gameful spirit. Like a super hero in disguise, gamification can be the secret identity behind an innovative and highly effective training program. That was just the approach Valary took in producing a blended learning program called Exploring Our Customer Service Universe: Moving Beyond Expectations that was delivered to experienced administrative and support staff at a top 10 law firm.
