comment Could gamification of training database work in a manufacturing environment?
I agree, I still believe gamification of a training system could work. Especially for young workers. But unfortunately that's not the case. Maybe I should make something like that after hours and sell it :-D

Although I must say, I do like the LinkedIn-approach you suggested. I think it could give a sense of accomplishment and at same time feel professional. As @sdg suggested, a star or badge might very well come off condescending. I think this has a lot to do with age. If we were talking about 500 young people between 18 and 24, a leader board and badges could work. But that's not the case. Right now there already initiatives in place with material rewards, such as a free dinner, a polo-shirt, etc and there are still quite a few people who couldn't care less.

Hi, thanks for the input. First off, the usability does not seem like an issue to me, navigation is as straightforward as it can be. The problem is the simple fact that learning subjects like these is not in their jobdescription. I think the biggest motivation will come from the fact that their job is made easier with the help of training like these. However, I am not in charge of writing the material, so that's not up to me.
