Thinkific Gamification Integration

Want to motivate students to complete courses and engage as a community? Use Pointagram to gamify your Thinkific course!

With Pointagram, you can add a point system to a course’s activities and create a fun and more interactive experience. Generate competitions between students with leaderboards, badges awarded as they progress, and display metrics. You can even set it up so students can convert points to virtual coins for buying rewards.

It’s a great way to increase course completion rates while also giving students well-deserved recognition for their hard work. But that’s not all! You can also fetch data from other data sources as well!

Players

On Thinkific student sign-in and sign-up, Pointagram receives student data and creates students as players in Pointagram. Students’ avatars will be loaded from Thinkific to Pointagram on the next sign-in.

Points

Pointagram has added three score series; Course completion, lesson completed, and user sign-ins. So, now we are starting to track students in Pointagram.

Lessons completed are added as point types in Pointagram. When editing Lesson Completed from the 3-dotted menu, you will find point types under point input. Here you can configure how much each Thinkific lesson type is worth.

Point tags

Every point added to Pointagram gets tagged with a course name. It gives the point context and more filtering options. A use case can be that only specific course points should qualify for a badge, competition, or a KPI widget. Read more about the score series in general. Continue reading here.
