Why to Consider Game-Based Online Learning - Joe Chapman, US News

Games can make online education more fun and allow students to apply what they learn to real-life situations. One of the primary benefits of game-based learning is that it offers custom learning experiences for students, which is important as every student learns differently. Throughout games, students can make mistakes, course correct and revisit concepts, allowing them to better understand course material and specific concepts they may struggle with. Another important benefit is that game-based learning is fun, and students enjoy learning. As opposed to some traditional education tactics that could feel passive or dull, game-based learning engages and motivates students, allowing them to actively learn, acquire skills and build thought processes. http://www.usnews.com/education/online-learning-lessons/articles/2016-07-15/why-to-consider-game-based-online-learning
