This week, we’ll address three topics: the board gamer event learnings from last weekend, expansion of our distribution channels, and current thoughts on crowdfunding as an option for tapping into new audiences in building awareness for LUPO.

Gamification Wednesday: My Experience Point System

Students collect points from positive feedback, homework, teamwork, projects and different kinds of assignments. For example from every positive feedback from teachers that teach my students they get 100 xp points. They level up when they reach 1000 xp points. They can use the points to buy different things. For example 1000 xp points can buy you a new place to sit in the classroom or a recess indoors. If students buy stuff they will lose a certain amount of points which is the cost of the purchase.

Startup Adventure Friday: Making first 100 paying customers happy

It’s better to have 100 people [who] love you than finding a million who just sort of like you. This is the stage we are in right now. Still burning money, but we now have a product to sell, a live web site, and the first 100 paying customers.
