Assets Settings

The Assets feature in Gameful allows for the tracking and management of physical or digital items that players can check out for use within the course. These could include books, equipment, or digital tools.

Here’s how to set up the Assets settings to keep track of these items effectively.

Enabling Asset Management #

  • Assets Status: Toggle ‘On’ to activate the tracking of assets. This will allow you to assign items to players and monitor their usage.

Configuring Asset Library #

  • Asset Library to Use: Select the appropriate asset library from the dropdown menu. This should be the collection of items you have available for checkout.

Managing Checkout Duration and Availability #

  • Number of Days Out: Define the standard loan period for an asset. For example, setting “1” means the asset can be checked out for one day before it needs to be returned or renewed.
  • Exclude Weekends: Decide whether the loan period should include weekends. Toggling ‘Yes’ means weekends are not counted in the loan period, which is useful for school settings where weekends are non-operational.

Setting Up Loot Charges #

  • Loot Per Day: If you want to charge loot for each day an asset is checked out, you can specify the amounts here.
    • Initial Charge: Choose whether to apply an initial charge of loot when the asset is checked out.
    • Experience Points (XP): Set the amount of XP that will be charged per day if the asset is not returned on time.
    • Gold (G): Specify the daily Gold charge for overdue assets.
    • Reputation (REP): Determine if there will be a Reputation penalty for late returns.

After configuring your Assets settings:

  • Click ‘Update’ to save the changes.
  • Make sure players understand the checkout system, including any loot charges or penalties for late returns, to ensure responsible use of assets.

The Asset Management feature is designed to extend the gamification experience to include resource responsibility, reflecting real-world accountability

and time management. It’s essential to clearly communicate these policies to ensure that all players are aware of the expectations and consequences related to asset usage.
