How to Leverage the Power of Serious Games

Totem Learning Ltd’s mission is to step away from tedious methods of eLearning and move towards using the latest technology in VR, AR, MR and XR to create engaging serious games and immersive digital experiences that improve an individual’s learning and development, fulfilling the criteria and course but in a way that means learners want to come back and play it again! Totem Learning are all about collaboration and creating beneficial games that prove that games are not bad at all and can, in fact, help with information retention and even job prospects. Studies have shown that with games, information retention increased by 9%! VR and AR is the future and Totem Learning saw the potential of using this technology to provide an experience whereby the learner is immersed in a whole new environment. This combines many of the seven styles of learning as opposed to simply one or two, which means that a larger demographic of people can benefit from them.

Totem’s core design team have over 100 years experience in developing such games and offer unique consultations that challenge a client’s idea, making it go from ‘good’ to ‘great’ by the end of it. Clients have included the likes of PwC, Shell, Deloitte and many more from educational institutions to charitable organisations. Totem Learning pride themselves on the ‘agile management’ style of project management that is adopted when dealing with development. This allows the company and the client to be in touch regularly and adapt to the demands, listening to experts from our creative team and technical team so that the product they end up with meets the requirements and is of an extremely high quality.
