Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning. Therefore, learning should never be a boring experience, rather it should be fun and immersive!! Keeping this core concept in mind, team Smartkeeda, India’s leading Test Series platform for Banking, Insurance, and other Government Job Exams, pioneered the idea of using Gaming and Social elements on an Education platform and developed India’s first Education-Gaming-Social platform (EGS), “Qudoo”, that borrows certain gaming principles and social elements and applies them to real-life settings to make fun just another word for learning.
As India’s first EGS application, Qudoo has been equipped with exclusive gamification elements like real-time challenges, rewards, leaderboards, earning badges, and social engagement to increase student participation and make learning a thrilling experience.In this article we’re going to discuss the given below points:
Have you ever met a person who actually wants to fail? NOBODY! Ever wondered why?
It is because the desire to succeed is inherent to human nature. We as human beings possess an inborn tendency to get ourselves noticed and appreciated, and success is what makes us look attractive to others. The entire structure of game-based education is built on this very concept.
As India’s first Education-Gaming Platform, Qudoo strategizes to make learning an immersive and engaging activity and helps you learn in the most stress-free manner. Qudoo allows you to compete with random aspirants on the platform and helps you to grow with each battle. Let us understand the role of gaming elements in the educational field:
Certain other benefits of technology-enabled game-based learning such as flexibility of timings, cost-effectiveness, and innovativeness help the students excel in competitive examinations in a fun-filled way. Owing to these benefits, India’s first EGS applicationhas been developed to help students kill two birds with one stone.
“Nothing is more addictive than victory, the more you win the more you want to win”.
Suppose you randomly spun a wheel on Amazon and won a Smart band as a reward. As a typical person, you’ll most likely be tempted to spin the wheel regularly thereafter!
Similar behaviour is exhibited by our minds while playing quizzes and educational games. Once you win a battle against an opponent and see your rank ascending on the leaderboard, your brain compels you to play more and be on the top. During this mechanism, you forget the amount of effort you’re putting into it whilecompeting and winning the battles.
The positive feeling and the sense of pride you achieve after winning a battle will persuade you to brush up on your skills and make you crave more victories. Perceiving this zeal for victory, India’s first Educational Gaming social platform, Qudoo, has been equipped with the following features to make your learning more interesting:
Definitely! It's our natural tendency to avoid things or situations that could end up in failure. This human trait has been used by the developers of Qudoo to make your losses a blessing in disguise. Once you lose a battle against your opponent, you can challenge the opponent to compete with you once again to win that failed mission. This will motivate you to learn from your mistakes, come back stronger and play the next match with utmost caution.
Therefore, competitive educational games are nothing but a win-win situation for a user.
“Surround yourself with people who have dreams, desire, and ambition. They’ll help you push for and realize your own”.
Staying connected with people of similar interests inspires you to do better in a certain field and achieve a common objective or goal with more enthusiasm. You’re a product of your environment, therefore, you should surround yourself with the best.
The inspiration of competing against one’s peers can challenge an aspirant to work much harder on his/her tasks than he/she would independently be driven to do so.Understanding the benefits of staying connected with a like-minded community, Qudoo developers conceived the addition of a “Social” element to our Education-gaming platform.This EGS platform provides you with an environment to compete with like-minded aspirants and grow mutually.
Remember! “Success is a team sport”. Cutting off all your ties with the social environment can sometimes leave you demotivated and make learning a tedious task to be done. Therefore you should make conscious efforts to stay connected with ambitious people who encourage you to go after your dreams and applaud your victories.
In this age of cut-throat competition, the theory of “work while you work and play while you play” has lost its charm. Students need to burn the midnight oil to be on a shortlist. To alleviate the amount of anxiety faced by the students during this phase,thepioneering step of Smartkeeda as India’s first Education-Gaming-Social platform (EGS) can prove to be a “game-changer” in the field of gaming-based education.
