Our challenges can be used to leverage gamification within your platform. It is up to you to decide if you would like to attach a prize. Some customers give away tee shirts, stickers, gift cards, etc. and sometimes bragging rights are enough to get users into the competitive spirit. Regardless of the prize, we have seen great success in adoption and engagement when leveraging this feature. If you would like to partner with HackEDU for a sponsored challenge day including $100 in Amazon gift cards for your users, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
You and your users can view the leaderboard for just your organization as well as globally for the entire platform by selecting “Leaderboard” at the top right of the platform and choosing if they would like to see just your organization leaderboard or the global leaderboard. The global leaderboard is opt in and anonymous.
If you plan on leveraging gamification for your users, we recommend you turn off “Show Coding Challenges” under your General Admin Settings so that your Users cannot access these challenges before you allow them to.
