The Pathway Game
The object of the game is to build a learning journey by placing cards in sequence of rows for each pathway “level”. You can have up to 4 levels in a pathway. Each level is represented by a different colour.
Each level must start with a single “Milestone” card in the first row. No other cards can be placed with the milestone card. All required activities must be completed in a level for the user to reach the next level in a path. You can have up to 4 levels
Each row can have up to 3 cards. This allows you to have up to 3 activities for the user to do simultaneously. Each row can have a combination of optional and required cards. A user must complete all required cards to move down to the next row in a level.
Required vs Optional Cards
Colour cards represent a required activity. This means the user must complete the activity in order to proceed. Grey cards are optional activities and the use is not required to complete them.
Automatically awarded to a user when they reach the row that the reward is on.
Automatically awarded to a user when they reach the row that the certificate is on.
Allows a mini pathway to be taken on the side. You can have a maximum of 2 side quests per level.
Unlocks access to a new pathway for the user to do. Can only be added at the end of a pathway, and used only once in a pathway.
Each card has four stats. These stats help you determine the effort vs benefit of activities. The stats are conservative in terms of their maximum or minimum, and don’t reflect real-world production values. The stats are as follows:
This stat indicates how accessible, enjoyable or easy the activity is: 1 being not at all and 5 being very much. For example, videos are far easier to watch than reading a long book.
How well an activity can be re-used beyond its application in the Falkor pathway. If weighted 1, the activity can only be used for a specific instance, and 5 suggests that it can be used on multiple platforms and channels. For example, a video can be used as an activity, for internal & external marketing, training videos or internal podcasts
How many resources (money, people, skills) does an activity need in order to be created? A value of 1 means that few resources are needed, and 5 means a lot of resources. For example, a virtual reality experience can be quite expensive to make and requires a high level of skills, whereas audio requires a lot less effort and money.
How long it takes to develop an activity. 1 being very quick, and 5 being very long. For example, to create a learning module can require video, images, writing and activities that would take longer than making a video. The quickest activity could be audio.
