LETTERS HOME: A BLOGGING CHALLENGE

75 POINTS PER POST

 

What is it for?

Sending letters home. Since no one writes with pen and paper these days, we figured the digital equivalent would be through blog posts. Write your session take-aways or transcribe your outdoor adventures. Share all the fun with friends and family back home. Just make sure it's safe for Mom to read (or not).

TWITTER

75 POINTS

 

What is it for?

Having the highest number of tweets during InstructureCon 2016. Tweets must include #instcon (#instcon16 does not count... please don't use)

 

How can I get one?

Between Tuesday 7/19/2016 and Thursday 7/21/2016, our team will keep an eye on the Twitterstream for #instcon. As long as you're actively tweeting cool stuff (ahem, no re-tweets, automatic tweets or spam), you'll be in the running for Top Tweeter.  We'll be keeping and eye on all those tweets, retweets, and likes and will name a winner soon after the conference.

 

The winner will be awarded the badge and his/her name will be posted below.

Congrats to Courtney Kofeldt for winning this challenge with her quality tweets during this year's InstructureCon!

 

 

 

 

NOTE: All badges and points should be awarded automatically upon successful completion,

except the InstructureCon badge and Top Twitter Badge (which will be awarded manually by 7/31/2016).
If you do not see a badge in your profile immediately, please follow these steps.
