Create your own virtual community which can only be accessed by students who complete their courses. The online community of students is added as a section of the course facilitating access to it and without having to log in again. The profile image of a student becomes his avatar and the rest of the community can easily recognize him.
Next to the avatar the system shows a series of stars that are obtained according to the level of participation of the user in the community (it’s status in front of the rest of users) and that will also be reflected in its global gamification score.
An online community of its own is an excellent loyalty strategy as it offers students a place where they can spend their time for more enjoyable activities than studying lessons or exercises. It allows them to even make friends when it comes to communities of a company or academy with several locations or a global community of a publisher available to all class groups that use their digital extension. If you increase the participation in the use of your courses you increase the loyalty of your students with it the probabilities of completion, as well as the use of training.
Students can upload their own avatar or choose one of the images of their selection to identify themselves in the course next to their username. This profile image is used in the community and also in the gamification classification tables.
The virtual communities of students encourage the active participation of students by offering them a meeting place in which to talk with their classmates. This is an excellent way to practice what has been learned in a relaxed way, and that provides the social component that this type of education lack.
The meeting rooms are the strong point of online language communities because they allow a total practice: oral and written expression and comprehension.
Online communities of learners with their forums, message boards, conversation threads, and meeting rooms for chatting via audio or video chat can be under the supervision and monitoring of a tutor or let the students manage its network without teacher intervention.
Teachers can direct students by creating and closing threads, solving doubts, or citing in rooms with students to practice.
