When Games Go Small

Mobile Learning Game Design Do's & Don'ts


More and more organizations are adding game-based learning and mobile learning to their training mix. While mobile provides a convenient experience for learners, their smaller screens require a great deal of design skill to create a strong learning experience, game play experience and user experience.

In this webinar, we’ll explore various mobile games and discuss the decisions that influenced their game design, learning design, and UX. We’ll discuss the differences in each of these areas of design and show the important role prototyping plays in game design. We’ll also share a case study of how a mobile learning game was used as part of a larger curriculum to drive measurable business results. You will leave this session with an understanding of the basic principles you need to follow when designing games for smartphones.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:


Tell the differences between game design, learning design, and UX design.


Understand basic principles to consider when designing games for smartphones.


Evaluate various criteria for game design, learning design, and UX design.


Recognize the business results a well-design learning game can drive as part of a larger training initiative.
