Enterprise platform gamification solutions that enhance long-term learning outcomes through fun and engaging game mechanics

A central issue across many business domains is inspiring and maintaining the kind of engagement and motivation which drive results.  Rigil understands how to incorporate game mechanics seamlessly into existing activities or into new programs from the beginning, as well as how to deliver these solutions on an enterprise platform that allows for customized, scalable deployment to a variety of audiences.

MAKE LEARNING FUN WITH RIGIL’S STRATAGEM GAMIFICATION PLATFORM

Rigil knows how to apply the principle of gamification to improve participant engagement and outcomes for a variety of activities, including but not limited to training development.  

Our strong grasp of system analysis allows us to truly understand the customer’s job, mission, and vision, leading to the definition of detailed behavioral objectives and requirements, whose achievement can be reliably measured within the application or system itself. Further, analysis of the target audience allows us to customize the deployment and presentation of our solutions across different facilities, geographical locales, job roles, or other distinct groups of participants. 

Rigil’s adherence to the principle that all systems should reliably capture metrics on achievement of the defined objectives and overall participant performance allows us to use those metrics both in service to effective gamification and as part of our process of continual improvement of the system itself.

Rigil understands that the central principle of gamification is not the use of any specific type of game, but rather that any activity is more engaging when it feels like a game to the participants. We therefore use metrics to allow for immediate feedback, scoring, and competition or collaboration, including the use of game mechanics such as badges, points, or leveling up.

Rigil not only understands the principles of gamification, our extensive experience in application development and business consulting allows us to develop and integrate with complex systems of all kinds. 

We know how to build a scalable data system as well as how to integrate our products with an existing enterprise infrastructure such as a Learning Management System (LMS), or allow a solution to operate seamlessly across multiple platforms. The result is a unique service in which Rigil leverages existing architecture, libraries, and components to deliver organizationwide solutions meeting customer needs within a shortened timeframe.

FEATURES OF RIGIL’S GAMIFICATION SOLUTION

• Seamless application of game mechanics to activities
• Accurate analysis of customer needs/systems
• Definition of measurable objectives/requirements
• Gathering and use of extensive, relevant metrics
• Customized, scalable deployment as an enterprise solution
• Leverages existing knowledge for cost and schedule savings
• Dedication to continuous improvement

Rigil has extensive experience in training development, and incorporates this expertise into the design of its innovative training games. For example, our FAA vectoring game starts off with very simple tasks such as reading compass degree headings, then proceeds to successively more complex tasks involving additional factors such as real-time weather input, constantly engaging the learner by keeping performance difficult but still achievable at each step. 

In terms of individual vs. competitive gaming, even the simplest of games, such as a word scramble or card matching game, can be rendered competitive to a degree with the addition of a ‘leaderboard’ where learners may compare top scores, or a side by side ‘race’ option if desired. More complex games, such as the vectoring or spatial visualizer ones can be used in individual, competitive, or even cooperative modes as desired.

Designing The Right Game for maximum results

Rigil applies a variety of Game Mechanics seamlessly to the activity in a manner designed to support the performance of the defined behavioral objectives.  This promotes greater participant engagement and ultimately better outcomes for the individual participant and the organization as a whole.

A process-driven approach to meeting goals & objectives

Rigil performs a detailed Requirements and System Analysis, leading to the definition of Requirements and Measurable Behavioral Objectives. This ensures that we are actually building a system that does what the customer needs, in particular promoting the learning outcomes or other behaviors the organization desires from participants.

Customized for your users

By analyzing the Target Audience in detail for characteristics such as job tasks, varying policies or procedures, and even cultural differences, Rigil’s gamification solution can be customized across different facilities, geographical locales, job roles, or other distinct groups of participants.  

Metrics and goals for continuous improvement

Rigil’s Gamification Solution measures actual Participant Outcomes and other Metrics, with three goals: 
1. To compare Actual Performance against Behavioral Objectives
2. To feed the use of Game Mechanics which employ immediate and ongoing feedback to participants in the activity.
3. To use as part of a process of Continuous Improvement.

This ensures that we know whether the system is succeeding, whether for individuals or the organization as a whole; helps to promote participant engagement in the activity; and allows the system to be made better.
