Learning through interactive resources is the funniest way to memorize new concepts. Games in e-learning are a tool that has proven to be efficient in enhancing knowledge retention and student engagement.
The games allow your students to learn with greater autonomy and at their own pace since they can repeat the game as often as they want until they reach their goals. Also, thanks to the feedback, they can assimilate the concepts more easily.
By setting the game with time, points, and wildcards, you motivate your students to compete against themselves and to overcome their outcomes in each attempt. It also helps to create different challenges, making the study more dynamic while deepening knowledge.
At isEazy, we are experts in e-learning solutions and are always at the forefront of technology and education; that’s why we have created a new interactive resource for your favorite authoring tool. Now you can enjoy a more educational version of the most popular game of the year, Wordle, at isEazy Author.
How does Words by isEazy Author work?
You must find the hidden word in 6 attempts, but don’t worry; there will be clues for students to guess and learn. In our educational version of Wordle, you can set up an image and text to help your learners discover the word and internalize the concepts seen in the course.
Each time the player tries to guess the word, the color of the box for each letter changes, and this makes it easier to discover the right one:
- • Green means that the letter is correct and in the right position.
- • Yellow means that the letter is in the word but in the wrong place.
- • Gray means that the letter is not in the word.
When the learners find the right word, explanatory feedback will appear to reinforce their knowledge. Remember that you must configure your game with enough words and maximum game time to guarantee more fun and learning. As students get more words right in less time, they will get more points and can repeat as many times as they want to win and exceed themselves.
