Sharing and importing quests

There's more to the Quests than just creating them: you can share them with other teachers or, in a pinch, import Quests from the Marketplace or use the Story Mode quests. Let's see how sharing and importing quests works!

Sharing quests with other teachers

After creating a really awesome quest, you may wonder "Could anyone else benefit from all this work?" Regardless of the reason, you can always share you work with other teachers.

First, you'll want to make sure that the quest is complete, that any files you're sharing is accessible, that there's a beginning and an ending, and that all objectives are properly connected. Once you feel your quest is ready to be shared:

  1. On your home page, click My Library in the upper part of the screen
  2. Click Quest
  3. Find the quest you want to share on the list and click on it to access the detailed view
  4. Click Share on the righthand side
  5. If asked, click Proceed (if your quest respects the Teacher License Agreement!)
  6. To share the quest directly with another teacher click the gray Share your quest button
  7. Copy the link or share it via Facebook, Twitter, or email

Submitting quests to the Marketplace

Instead, you might want to share your quest with a whole community. Before you do this, make sure that your quest is...

  • Complete: Your quest should include a starting point (introduction), several objectives (use as many or as few as needed), and an endpoint. Make sure to submit quests that are completed from beginning to end.
  • Appropriate: The language and themes of your quest should be appropriate for all students. Avoid strong or offensive language, shocking themes, discrimination, and violence.

  • Accessible: Your quest should be in English, and all its tasks and assignments should be publicly available to other teachers.

  • Proofread: Make sure to submit the final reviewed version of your quest. Check the story for consistency, grammar, and spelling mistakes before submitting your work.

  • Transferable: Your quest is readily usable by other teachers and provides adequate references to outside material (textbooks, tools, in-class documents, etc.).

  • Original: You are the original creator of the quest’s story and tasks. You may submit a quest created by another teacher if you’ve significantly modified it or adapted it enough to make it your own. 

To submit your quest for approval:

  1. On your home page, click My Library in the upper part of the screen
  2. Click Quest
  3. Find the quest you want to share on the list and click on it to access the detailed view
  4. Click Share on the righthand side
  5. If asked, click Proceed (if your quest respects the Teacher License Agreement)
  6. Check This quest is complete and ready to be shared. (if it is!)
  7. Click Submit your quest

While submitting your quest

  • Decide if you want us to consider your quest for Quest of the Month. If so, let us know what makes your quest stand out in the text form below.
  • Decide if you want to share your story only or if you want to share your quest story, tasks, and assignments.
  • Provide a description of your quest
  • Select which grade(s) and subject(s) apply to your quest. You can select as many as necessary, but you’ll need to select at least one of each.
  • If asked, select the Standards for your quest.

You can click on Quest submission terms to review the terms before submitting your quest.

When you're ready, click Share on the Marketplace. We’ll review it as soon as possible and send you an email to inform you of the outcome.

Story Mode

To help you leverage the power of narrative in your classroom, the Classcraft team is happy to provide you with ready-made stories set in the universe of Classcraft. Each episode comes with three six-objective quests (including an introduction and a conclusion), a new map (already in game), and gorgeous artwork.

Check out the trailer to get you started!

Using Story Mode Quests

To import these pre-made quests, go to the Story Mode homepage and check out Season 1. You can import story quests to your account one at a time.

After importing a Story Mode quest, but before making it visible, you should add tasks to the objectives that are not the introduction or the conclusion. Tasks can be created from any work you already have planned in your curriculum.

If your lesson plan requires more than six objectives, feel free to edit a story quest. You can add, remove, and edit objectives just like any regular quest.

As with other quests, Story Mode quests on free accounts can't have more than 6 objectives.

Creating your own Story Mode quests

Want to send your students on a sidequest? Feel inspired to create a quest yourself?

To help you create quests that are aligned with the story cannon, we have created a Story Guidebook that you can view here. Click on Guidebook and select a category to view.

Each article informs you about a specific topic. You’ll even find quest ideas to help you build around the subject.

Once you create a quest that aligns with the story, you can even share it with other teachers. If you share it on the Marketplace and prefer not sharing tasks, select the “Story only” option before submitting your quest.
