Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Eva Deutsch

Primers on Octalysis Prime often times are very successful in their work or business already. Take Eva Deutsch with 20 years of consulting background who owns the independent game design and development studio BrainBrosia Entertainment.

BrainBrosia covers the entire range of game design, development, art/graphic, and production. While focussing mainly on mobile games, they developed for other platforms as well.
From this position, Eva decided to join Octalysis Prime to level up her skills even further.

Eva’s submission covers the MVP (minimal viable product) of a recruiting app that her company BrainBrosia is testing with medium-sized companies. The candidates go through a Story-driven Swiping app where they learn about the company while engaging with tasks related to the new job.

Eva took the feedback on her first submission to heart, and delivered a great resubmission qualifying for the Level 1 Octalysis Certificate. Congratulations, Eva. Well deserved.

Thanks for your profound feedback. I have tried to include everything you suggested (even have drawn all Octalysis frameworks and redraw slides for transparency).

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Ashley Nielsen

One of the most rewarding things about the Octalysis Certification process is seeing people learn and progress with feedback. Ashley is a good example of someone who learned a lot in little time.

For her Octalysis Certificate submission, Ashley tackled the Epic! children’s reading app. This app encourages children age 12 and under to read more books and allows teachers to track the activity of pupils.

Ashley also has her own Learning Architecture Consulting company. With a total of 20+ years of experience in the field of Education Design, Learning Architecture helps the best among educators and institutions to desgin educational processes that make their vision a reality. They create customized designs for each system of education.

After only one round of feedback, Ashley delivered a quality submission. Especially her Analysis of the Current Experience is worth taking a look at.

Congratulations, Ashley! Your Octalysis Certificate is well deserved.

“Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback. I am slowly making my way through it and making improvements. This process is certainly clarifying many of the concepts. So glad I did it!”

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Sufiz Mohd Suffian

Oftentimes, our Primers are learning Octalysis because they want to excel at their work. Like Sufiz Mohd Suffian. Sufiz has his own company, RecurConsult, a behavioral design and gamification consultancy that specializes in creating impactful experiences, and driving desired behaviors through design and engagement.

With RecurConsult, Sufiz has worked with Fortune 500 companies, Multinational Corporations, Local Conglomerates, Government Agencies, and SMEs across various industries, including human resources, retail, oil & gas, financial services, and more. Despite these accomplishments, Sufiz wants more and is a life-long-learner.
So Sufiz submitted for his Octalysis Level 1 Certificate.

“Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to earn this distinguished certificate. Even after being part of the gamification industry for several years now, I was still able to learn so much from this experience. I am excited to apply these valuable lessons to my own work and future projects.”

Sufiz Mohd Suffian

We were impressed with the growth Sufiz showed after the received feedback, as well as with his Brainstorming.

Congratulations, Sufiz! We hope to see more of you in the future.

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Sébastien Dostie

Sébastien Dostie (LinkedIn) is one of the many people who attended the 2020 Behavioral Design Masterclass to up his Human-Focused Design skills.

As a part of the Masterclass, Sébastien decided to take it one step further and submit for his Octalysis Certificate. In his submission, Sébastien analyzed Hardbacon, a financial app from FinTech startup Hardbacon Inc. The app’s mission is to help the user take control of their personal finance.
Although Hardbacon is successful at presenting your financial status, Sébastien feels the app falls short in helping users control their finance by using the stock market.

Sébastien Dostie: “I believe that putting Hardbacon through the Octalysis lens has the potential to shine lights on how to improve the experience.”

Wow! Thank you for this new round of feedback. Makes me want to review it again as you bring very interesting questions and observations.

Sébastien Dostie

Well done on your submission and attaining your Octalysis Certificate, Sébastien. Congratulations!

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Jordan Rothenberg

In the summer of 2020 we had our first big Masterclass about Octalysis and Behavioral Design. This was in many aspects a big succes, one of the more important ways was the quality in Octalsis Certificate submissions from the Masterclass submissions we have seen.

Among them is Jordan Rothenberg. Jordan did his Octalysis submission about the 3-6 month performance-based onboarding curriculum for SFRS front-line customer service specialists at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Most submissions we receive cover apps or other digital products. Jordan chose an offline experience of Service Specialists in Training.
These SSTs attend training sessions, complete written and verbal tests, shadow current staff. They perform reverse shadowing, create personal cheat sheets by topic, andare evaluated against qualitative and productivity metrics.

This onboarding experience is so extensive, that is has all the Four Phases of Discovery, Onboarding, Scaffolding and Endgame in it.

Learning and applying this material was definitely a deep-dive and growth inducing experience.

Jordan Rothenberg

Congratulations Jordan! We are looking forward to your submission for a Level 2 Certificate.

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Gabriel Goh

There are Octalysis Explorers in almost every country on Earth. Today we would like to introduce you to Gabriel Goh from Malaysia. He participated in the Behavioural Design Masterclass and successfully submitted for his Level 1 Octalysis Certificate!

Octalysis Level 1 Certificate

Most submissions we receive cover apps or other digital products. Gabriel chose an offline experience: the local ‘Number Eight’ Board Game Cafe. The cafe is run by tabletop game enthusiasts and is a place where people not only buy games, but come together to play games while enjoying snacks and drinks. One of the main challenges they face is attracting customers during weekdays that can be very quiet compared to the weekends.

Like Sarah Le-Fevre, Gabriel impressed us with good quality work and managed to obtain an Octalysis Certificate on his first attempt! He also considered the user experience of reading through the submission and used a fun visual touch to add Core Drive 7: Curiosity. Check it out to learn from this!

Congratulations Gabriel! We are looking forward to your submission for a Level 2 Certificate. Check out the Hall of Fame where we show every person who, through skill and hard work, attained their Level 1 and Level 2 Octalysis Certificate!

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Sarah Le-Fevre

Many of you might know Sarah Le-Fevre as she is very active in the Gamification space and the chief editor of the online magazine Ludogogy. She is now also the proud owner of the Level 1 Octalysis Certificate!

Octalysis Level 1 Certificate

The WaterWatch Learning Programme is part of a multi-million dollar sustainability project by a large corporate organisation. The main learning opportunity is a one-day face-to-face employee engagement programme, open to all of the organisation’s 230,000 employees globally. A smaller number of employees are given kits to take away with them to continue testing their own chosen waterbody and uploading data for the project.

We were impressed with the overall quality of Sarah’s submission. She absorbed the knowledge of Yu-kai’s Behavioral Design Masterclass very well and managed to obtain an Octalysis Certificate on her first attempt! Only three other of the many Masterclass participant succeeded to do so. An impressive accomplishment!

Congratulations Sarah! We are looking forward to more of your contributions in the Ludogogy magazine and updates in the Premium Octalysis Prime Community.

Check out the Hall of Fame where we show every person who, through skill and hard work, attained their Level 1 and Level 2 Octalysis Certificate!

I’m really honoured to join the ranks of those who have already done this, and I’m looking forward to work towards the Level II certification.
