NEW DATA FINDS GAME BASED LEARNING IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN TRADITIONAL VIDEO-BASED LEARNING

August 30, 2021 GMT

Newark, NJ, Aug. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 1Huddle, a workforce tech company that upskills, trains and motivates employees through the use of science-backed, quick-burst mobile games, today revealed new research conducted in collaboration with the University of South Florida’s Muma College of Business – Vinik Sport & Entertainment Management Program. The study found that while both groups gained similar levels of information, the group learning using the game-based approach with 1Huddle learned the same material 45% faster than the group that used video-based courses on LinkedIn Learning.

The University conducted a research study on more than 600 participants to compare the effectiveness of two just-in-time learning methods, video-based learning and game-based learning. In the study, an industry-leading learning management system (LMS) was tested against 1Huddle to compare which method was more effective.
