โ€Œ
You can receive or spend tokens via the player and in the community (โ€œonlineโ€) or via classes and other learning activities like meet-ups and events (โ€œofflineโ€). Note: classes and events etc. are normally offline, but due to corona measures currently migrated to the online realms as well.
โ€Œ
There are therefore four scenarios that we will describe:
โ€Œ
1. Scenario 1: earn tokens offline
โ€Œ
2. Scenario 2: earn tokens online
โ€Œ
3. Scenario 3: spend tokens offline
โ€Œ
4. Scenario 4: spend tokens online
โ€Œ
2.1 Scenario 1. Students RECEIVE the Titan tokens for OFFLINE learning activities
โ€Œ
With standard activities, a student can earn a total of 200 Titan tokens per week during offline learning activities. 100 Titans to be received from their teachers & 100 Titans from their field assignment provider. Random additional rewards can be reaped as well! How to earn them:
โ€Œ
20 Titans are to be earned when showed engaged behaviour during classes. This differs per tutor, but the first few examples which we will test are attendance of mind. Your lecturer will find a sneaky way to check this ๐Ÿ˜‰. Lecturer will explain the rules of engagements plus the doโ€™s and donโ€™ts later on during class.
โ€Œ
    Token rewards during class quizzes and other games. 1 = 200, 2 = 100, 3 = 50 Titans. And off course, donโ€™t forget the deafening cheers from your fellow students whom are awed by your knowledge!
    If your โ€œSlido-questionโ€ gets selected during class or guest lecture by the group = 10 tokens.
    Random rewards for students which take initiative during class. The activity and reward are to be selected by lecturer and to be negotiated with students. Bargain hard my friends!
    Max 50 Titans based on your grade from the weekly tests or other in-between grades which you receive. The full score of a 10 will deliver you 50 Titans, a 9 will be rewarded with 45, 8 = 40 etc. Work hard = earn hard!
    15 Titans when you manage to meet all the deadlines. Easy money!
    15 Titans when you submit your weekly feedback form. You can complain and earn at the same time ๐Ÿ˜‰!
    Random rewards for answering questions, provide feedback etc to other fellow students in Slack. Pro tip: be sure to show your public key where fellow students can easily find it, like for example your status in Slack.
    100 Titans via assignment providers to motivate students for desired behaviour, to be discussed between students and the assignment provider.
    Many more extra Titans via the Koios Core Team for extracurricular activities like attending hackathons / helping at meet-ups etc. This differs per course, keep your eyes open in Slack!
โ€Œ
2.2 Scenario 2: students RECEIVE the Titan tokens via ONLINE learning activities*
โ€Œ
Our students learn in blended fashion, the combination of online and offline learning. They can therefore also acquire tokens in the online realm, via the Koios tools. Examples
โ€Œ
    Random Titans based on participation in Slack community. Tokens can come from Tutors and students alike.
    Random Titans based on behaviour in forumchat per clip. Tokens can come from Tutors and students alike.
    1 Titan per watched clip, possibly per quiz. Fully automated, unfortunately still under construction at the moment.

2.3 Scenario 3: students can SPEND their Titan tokens for OFFLINE gains:
โ€Œ
Finally! Now you have gathered a lot of Titans, but what can you do with them?!
โ€Œ
ยท Save yourself some time! Exemption from one of the weekly assignments or activities, with a maximum of one assignment to be eliminated per week. It will cost you a 100 Titans and learning experience, but you can sleep in!
โ€Œ
    By participating in learning activities you can earn and buy the participation bonus point for the final verbal exam: 600 Titans in exchange for one full point during the final verbal exam.
    To be used at our brand new Koios Classroom at the DCEC location: play on the Game Arcade or Consoles (1 Titan per game credit), a cup of coffee (1 Titan per cup), slice of pizza (20 Titans per slice) or drink at the meet-ups and events (10 Titans)
    Access to exclusive services like access to Odyssey invite only event (500 Titans) or the personal leadership course provided by Motivated Minds (500 Titans).
    We would like to reward those that work hard, that do their best and those that share with opportunities, so even now and then some interesting side-jobs might present themselves. Check the Koios Slack for interesting opportunities!
    We might even be in time for the setup of a weekly Titan Leader board. Eternal glory awaits you!
โ€Œ
2.4 Scenario 4: Students can SPEND their Titan tokens for ONLINE gains:
โ€Œ
    Share your tokens with friends and fellow students that help you. Or give your burning questions an additional bounty for a quick and solid reply!
    Save up for Titan Levels, with all different kinds of benefits per level (statuses & perks to be announced this year!).

Badge System

NOTE: For general introduction of badge system, click on Titan Tokens first :-)
โ€Œ
By the end of the course the student will receive a validated badge which proves that you passed the course. You might have already read between the lines here, but just like tokens the set-up for these badges are highly experimental and we are in the beginning phase. We do move fast though, so
โ€Œ
during this minor we might even be in time for the creation of an entire constellation of different type of badges with different type of levels. For different type of users to be received!
โ€Œ
An example of how a badge might look like would be:
