The minds behind Mootivated, the mobile app-based take on Moodle gamification, are debuting Motrain, a similar concept catering to the corporate sphere. Like its K-12 brother, Motrain rewards students who interact with Moodle content with virtual coins.
Motrain comes with a web dashboard where Moodle admins can follow students’ learning performance and virtual earnings. It also offers a store with items student can buy with the product of their efforts.
The types of items and their prices are completely up to the LMS manager’s discretion. The Motrain team suggests trying out different items and prices until identifying the sweet spot of desirability and challenge. The availability of the items can also be set to encourage competition and fast earnings. Raffle tickets are also available. Examples of items can be:
- A day or week of parking in the Director’s parking spot
- A week of telecommuting
- Take-out or a night out for the office
- Lunch with a team member of their choice
Motrain offers one type of license with full access, charged on a per-user basis. See Motrain’s pricing and sign up page here.
