*Quests are a Premium feature

Once you've created a quest and set up your introduction, you can add more objectives to your quest. Click the green "+" button in the bottom right, then click on the map to place a new objective and open the Objective Creation screen.

The Objective Creation screen

The first step is to enter an objective name and select an objective type, then click "Next" in the bottom right.

Tasks are an activity students have to complete in order to progress and move forward in the story — homework assignment, in-class exercise, etc. The Quest End marks the end of the quest, where you can write a conclusion to your narrative arc.

*Other types of objectives will eventually be added! These will include random encounters, self-correcting quizzes and integrations with other apps, like Google Classroom.

 

The task

To create a task, you must first add a story and task description, then choose whether to include an assignment, discussion, and reward. You can go through all these options by clicking "Next" in the bottom right or by clicking section titles at the top.

  1. The story is where you can tie the task to your overarching narrative.
  2. Your task description should include instructions for your students: What do they have to do? What are the requirements to successfully complete the task?
  3. If you enable assignments, you can collect homework and projects digitally from your students and reward them for timely submissions. Set a due date for the assignment, and set a student reward (XP and/or GP). If you’d like, you can also check the “Enable reward for early hand-in” box to add an early due date and offer even more rewards.
  4. If you enable discussions, you can allow students to have a class discussion online about the objective. This feature helps you promote good digital citizenship by rewarding students with XP or GP for thoughtful, positive comments and discourage negative online behavior by removing HP from any students who post inappropriately. Students can also take action when they see another student posting inappropriate content by “flagging” the comment for the teacher’s attention. As the teacher, you can post new comments or reply to any existing comment as well.
  5. You can add an objective reward that students earn when they’ve completed the objective.

Once you've gone through all of the above, you can save your task to return to your quest map.

Don’t worry: You can create as many objectives as you need! To change the position of an objective, simply drag and drop them to a new location on the map.

Next, you can Access and use the Quests Progress Center.
