Serious Games

What research has shown and where actual implementations continue to clearly affirm, is that using serious games for education, training and practice leads to improved, effective learning.

We advocate serious games played in authentic, virtual 3D environments that are immersive and engaging. They are contextualised to different situations and are “safe”, allowing mistakes or failures whilst encouraging recursive play and practice. And enabling such games on mobile devices means that users can play anywhere, anytime, leading to self-directed learning.

To that end, Playware pioneered 3DHive, a complete game-based learning and practice platform that allows users to quickly create, share, play short-form 3D “gamelets” on popular desktop and mobile devices. The gamelets has a low entry cost and are ideal in blended learning approaches

To discover how serious games and gamelets can help you and your organisation, come talk to us.

In practice, there is."
