Learning News caught up with Mike Hawkyard from Gamebrain at World of Learning last month to find out more about using games in learning.

We asked Mike about using gaming elements in learning to engage and create effective learning. Mike highlights the need to keep learning games short and repetitive and use gaming tricks and techniques to keep players engaged.

And we asked Mike about the concerns facing customers and his priorities for 2020. Watch Mike Hawkyard’s interview here on Learning News and check out more interviews from World of Learning 2019.
