Overview of the global higher education game-based learning market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global higher education game-based learning market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 14% by 2020. Motion-sensing technology can be used to study the motion of the learner while the learning process is in progress and can record inferences accordingly. For instance, the eye-tracking feature can be used to deduce the focus level of the student, while the facial expressions and head positions can be studied to understand the learner’s engagement and also the focus level. This helps the instructor to modify the learning environment and content according to the preference of the students. Motion-sensing technology also helps learners practice physical skills or nuances, which can be implemented into the learning activity. For instance, the incorporation of physical movements or activities trains the learner about the optimum force or pressure required for a particular task. This will people the demand for the implementation of gamification in education, especially in the higher education sector.

Virtual reality (VR) can provide interactive and immersive experience using digital platforms. VR and augmented reality (AR) technologies will soon find applications not only in STEM courses but also in liberal art courses like archaeology and history. These technologies improve kinesthetic experiences, which can increase motivation, retention rates, and engagement in students, and will subsequently enhance the adoption of educational games in the higher education segment.
