Get your head in the Gam(ification)

Gamification is all about adding an element of engagement, to encourage everyone to connect and engage throughout the event. It allows those willing to participate to complete challenges in the online platform, receive points for each completed challenge, and see where they are on the leaderboard. Different challenges can be worth different amounts and those who win or participate in the game can receive prizes!

On this page, you will be able to see how many goals you have completed and the points accumulated by completing these goals. The top 10 attendees with the most points will be shown, as well as your current position.

The goals page shows the individual tasks you will need to complete in order to gain points for badges and go in the draw to win the prize. For example, log in to the online portal before 8 am on the last day of the conference and you will receive 20 points (as shown above) if you do not log in before this time you will miss out on this goal.

Badges are achieved by completing a certain combination of goals. The more goals you complete the higher chance you have of earning your badges. For example, answer three trivia questions shown in the goals tab correctly and you will obtain your Trivia Master Badge.

This page shows how many points are required per ticket to go in the draw to win the prize up for grabs. For example, for every 100 points you receive through completing goals, you will get one ticket to go in the draw to win the iPad.
