Inventory in Gameful

Inventory management is a core feature of Gameful, offering a versatile system of rewards and tools that enhance gameplay and learning. While badges are a significant and popular use of this feature, symbolizing achievements and milestones, the inventory system encompasses much more. It provides a flexible structure for a variety of “Inventory Items” that can be customized or named according to the thematic elements of your course. These items can include badges, keys, tools, team affiliations, and more—each adding a unique dimension to the game.

  • Badges: Representing achievements, competencies, or special recognitions.
  • Teams: Allowing students to be part of groups, fostering collaboration and group identity.
  • Keys: Serving as access points for new levels or challenges, they can lock or unlock content based on student progress.
  • Tools: Used to enhance the learning experience or to provide advantages in specific quests.

  • Display: Students can showcase their collected items on their profiles, adding to their sense of accomplishment.
