Cisco Systems

Cisco Systems has over 300,000 CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Administrators) worldwide. Cisco was experiencing less than 10% participation in the CCNA Community Web Site, the primary communication touchpoint between Cisco and CCNAs. Cisco wanted new ways to drive site traffic and encourage participation to promote ongoing education, new product releases and marketing updates to the engineers. Communication within the CCNA Community Web Site became a paramount goal for Cisco.

After studying the situation, educational games were identified as a means to promote distribution of information and participation within the community. The Cisco Learning Game Series provided educational value for the CCNA's to hone and test their technical knowledge, while providing a fun and engaging experience that encouraged repeat usage. This new means of communication and learning spread with viral force throughout the CCNA community.

The Cisco Learning Game Series was originally created specifically for use on the CCNA Community Web Site. The series has extended its reach and grown exponentially for internal training of Cisco employees, played competitively on kiosks at tradeshows to promote Cisco's certification programs, and distributed on CDROMs, through various sales channels.
