STEP 1

Project A Road Map, Journey or Pathway

Outline the steps or points that your student need to complete to transition from where they are to where they want to be, and use this to create a road map for your students, so that they can see exactly how they go from zero to hero. Seeing this transformation evokes excitement in the students and motivates them to reach the finish line.

STEP 2

Create a sense of accomplishment

Affirm your students’ progress with tests and scores. Once learners pass a test, reach a level, earn a certain number of points, etc… give them something to show they’ve done well. Badges can be awarded to learners who have successfully completed stages in a program. Achievement rewards can also be used to unlock levels in your course, or they can be used in compliance training to demonstrate the workforce’s competence in a particular area.

Ways:

  1. Points
  2. Coins
  3. Levels
  4. Badges
  5. Popup celebrations with confetti

STEP 3

Give Users Challenges To Complete

Many learning management systems easily allow prerequisites within your course. You can simply force the student to complete one task at a time, in order to advance to the next course section. In addition to challenges in your course, consider rewarding your student. Rewards are a great way to recognize student achievement and promote further motivation and confidence. Even if badges are given for simply completing an assignment or test, the student will appreciate the recognition of their effort.

STEP 4

Unlock content based on actions

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Cras at risus ex. Suspendisse in lectus at turpis imperdiet dignissim ut vel metus. Praesent gravida hendrerit eros, et semper ligula pretium et. Ut suscipit lorem sed gravida sollicitudin. Sed vitae vulputate sem. Integer interdum orci in sapien lobortis congue. Quisque eros arcu, efficitur et molestie sed, accumsan a nisi. Donec euismod sit amet enim id malesuada.

STEP 5

Make it fun

There’s a tendency to want to make quizzes or tests that reflect the types of assessment exams we all took in school, but the idea behind using gamification to quiz your students is to motivate them by showing them how much they’ve already learned. You can combine a quiz with social sharing or unlocking badges, which gives students something to look forward to after completing a challenge. Quizzes can also be used as the key to unlock the next piece of content in your course. This provides your learners with instant feedback on their understanding of the course concepts.

BONUS IDEA

Use Social Sharing To Increase Buy-in and Engagement

If achieving something is motivating in itself, sharing your success with others is even more powerful. By adding a social sharing component to your online courses, you make it almost irresistible for learners to celebrate their successes along the way, which then inspires them to keep going.

You can do this by awarding badges when students complete modules or mini courses, and you can implement a “share on social media” button that gives them the ability to show off their progress.

The added bonus to you as a course creator is that when students share their course achievements, they’re also building buzz and organically generating word-of-mouth marketing for you.
