Gamification

GoVenture Health uses a new and innovative format for delivering educational content.  It is best described as a gamified ebook, or more precisely a gamified photobook.  Content is presented using a highly visual style and supported with achievements, rewards, and engaging interactivity to encourage reading and understanding.

•  Text and graphics are displayed together in photobook style.

•  Learners earn points and achievements at every step in their learning journey, which encourages them to continue their progress.

•  Designed to offer modular and flexible micro-learning experiences, learners can easily move in, out, and between various topics, text, games, and activities.

•  Progress can be saved and resumed at any time. Performance reports are updated in real time and can be reviewed by learners and submitted to the instructor in print or electronic form.

Rewards

GoVenture Health is designed to reward learners at every step of their journey. By earning points and achievements, learners are motivated to continue their learning. Learners can also share their achievements with friends, family, and instructors. Rewards include:

•  Points earned as text is viewed.

•  Gold coins earned for taking optional quizzes after reading topic sections.

•  Achievements and points earned for playing games. Games can be repeated to earn more points and improve high scores.

•  And more!

Modular and Flexible

GoVenture Health is designed to offer modular and flexible micro-learning experiences. Learners can explore content that piques their interests, or be directed by an instructor to specific topics and activities. Learners can easily move in, out, and between various topics, text, games, and activities.

Progress can be saved and resumed at any time. Performance reports are updated in real-time and can be reviewed by learners and submitted to the instructor in print or electronic form.

Student Progress and Assessment
