Gamification techniques help drive participant engagement by creating playful, even competitive, aspects similar to those used in video games.

3 features are available on your 360Learning platform to generate gamification: Badges, Challenge mode, and Achievements.

 


Badges

Important: only admins of the group that represents your company (i.e. "generic group") can create badges. Admins of the subgroups you have created will not be able to create badges.

To create a badge:

  1. Go to the Training Programs > Badges menu
  2. Click the + button

Did you know? A single skill badge can be earned via multiple combinations of courses and sessions. For instance, a learner can earn a badge upon completing 3 courses (A, B, C) OR 1 program and 2 courses (D, E, and F). Click on the + button to add a new combination!

 

Edit a badge

Badges can be edited at any time.

Please note: once the badge is deleted, it will no longer be visible on learners' profile.

 

Earn badges

A badge is received automatically after a session or a course required is validated by a learner.

Please note: if the required course is in Training or Exam mode with a minimal score, the badge will only be unlocked after the course validation:

  • Training mode course failed: the learner has to retry the course in order to validate it and have the badge unlocked
  • Exam mode course failed: the learner will not receive the badge.

  

Track learners who have unlocked a badge

You can find learners based on the skill badges they’ve been awarded from your Dashboard. 

To do so:

  1. From your Homepage, go to the Dashboard

Achievements

On your Homepage, Achievements motivate your learners into becoming active platform contributors.

As soon as a user validates requirements, they unlock a new level of Achievement.

Please note: Achievements are a generic platform feature. Therefore, it is not possible to create custom Achievements, nor can you edit them. However, you can create Badges or Certificates.
