155: Making it Fun

Whether you teach kids or adults, gamification is a great tool to bring into your online programs.

Gamification is the concept where we encourage students to learn and apply what they learn to earn rewards. The two most popular forms of gamification with online programs are “B-I-N-G-O” style and points.

For “B-I-N-G-O” students work to complete 24 or 25 tasks that pertain to applying the knowledge they learn in the program, or tangential/fun tasks.

And for the points system, it’s all about the PRIZE BOX at the end… prizes can vary from digital stickers and social media shout outs to physical trinkets and gift cards and books.

For kids, I often suggest a collective reward, so that they can develop community and all be working towards the same objective rather than it being a competition.

Have fun with gamification — it can turn first time students into lifelong students and friends.
