People of all ages love reaching goals, completing challenges, and being recognized for their achievements. They can motivate and incentivize us to do work, or learn a skill. In school we earn grades & degrees. At sports we get trophies. At work we get awards & certificates. In gaming we get points or coins.
Our goal was to develop a curriculum for kids & adults that introduces them to new concepts, tools, and skills surrounding technology. So we built a video learning, quiz & badge system that does just that.
The instructor, can bring up the video lesson, have a discussion about the content, then proceed to administer the quiz. Students can login to their badge account, and take the 8 question quiz showing they have learned the material.
If the student answers one question incorrectly – they cannot take the quiz again until the instructor allows it. However, if the student answers all questions correctly, the system will award them their badge!
