Looking for a fun way to develop staff skills? Education By Design, a San Jose, Calif.-based interactive game company, recently launched an online service that allows employers to create interactive training games for employees, clients, vendors and customers.
EBD 3.0 uses new and existing content to build interactive educational applications, manage enrollment of both small and large groups, and generate and distribute reports. The games aim to develop long-term memory skills and generate excitement about a product, service or concept.
The service costs anywhere from $1,000 to $15,000, depending on the needs of the company. A one-month trial is available for $1,000.
