Quests – Creating and differentiating paths

full-quest.jpg

*Quests are a Premium feature

Once you've created your quest and added objectives to your map, you can create and differentiate paths between your objectives.

Paths represent the student progression between each objective on the map — they can be linear or branching. To start connecting your objectives, click the "path" button in the bottom right.

Drag from one objective to the other to create a path. A small menu will then appear over your path:

  • Select the checkmark to only allow students who successfully complete the objective to proceed.
  • Select the X to only allow students who unsuccessfully complete the objective to proceed. (You may want to use this strategy to lead students who need extra help understanding a concept onto a branching path that involves more work or teaches the idea in another way.)
  • Select both the checkmark and X to allow all students, regardless of successful or unsuccessful completion, to proceed.
  • Use the trashcan to delete the path between objectives.

In the example above, all students move from the Introduction to "Small Steps" to "A New Discovery." However, students who have succeeded that last task will then go to "Finding a Way" while students who have failed will go through "Looking Back" before moving on to "Finding a Way."

This is a great way to provide extra support to students who are having difficulties: Simply add additional tasks for them to complete in order to reach the objective.

Click the blue "x" button in the bottom right to quit the Path Creation mode. Once you’re ready to share your quest, you can click the "eye" icon in the bottom left to make it visible to your students.

If you've made your quest visible prematurely, you can always hide it again. To do so, click the small pencil next to your quest name in the top left corner of the game to edit your quest information. The button to hide your quest will appear in the bottom left corner.

Next, you can learn more about the Quests Progress Center.
