We have recently been involved in the Microsoft Educator Community where they award points and badges for completion of courses - hugely impressive and has really engaged the staff (as well as bringing out their competitive instincts)


I would dearly love to use Jive (the Community platform) as a school platform to support our staff and their digital learning skills. Sadly the cost is HUGELY prohibitive - $20 per month per user!!


So a Discussion area to ask the following:


  1. Has anyone got any experience of similar, more cost appropriate tools?
  2. Has anyone used gamification, badging, points, rewards, quizzing in Canvas to support staff training?


Would love to hear and share your experiences



Here is how I am (sort of) gamifying learning of digital skills of students - Gamifying Digital Skills with Badgr Badges
