Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Robert Sherman

We are very strict when reviewing submissions for the Octalysis Certificates. The bar we have set is high, even for the Level 1. This means that most people need one or two re-submissions before meeting all the criteria, if at all.

It also means that those who earned their certificate have really proven that they are worthy!

Robert is one of the few people who managed to obtain the Octalysis Level 1 Certificate with their first submission! Impressive.

Robert’s analysis of the weight-loss app Noom is steady on all fronts. He also took into consideration the experience of the reader.

By adding a progress bar on the slides, the reader gains more control over their experience (CD2) and is more likely to keep on reading.

Congratulations, Robert. Well done!

I am so excited to receive my Level 1 Certificate, and even more excited to take part in this amazing community.

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Timothy Sher

On Octalysis Prime we have a Leveling System. Users start at Blue status level 1, after reaching level 10, they upgrade to Orange status level 1. And so on through Purple, Silver, Gold and finally Black status.

Reaching the highest status colour takes a lot of determination. So far, only a handful of Octalysis Primers have achieved this impressive milestone. Timothy is one of those people! Yet he is one of the humblest members we have.

For his Octalysis Level 1 Certificate, Timothy chose an experience that is close to his heart.

Timothy really nailed mapping out the Desired Actions. They are written as user actions, are listed in order of experience flow and support the Business Metrics well. 

Congratulations, Timothy. Good job!

I would like to thank Peter who introduced Octalysis to me. I also appreciate the videos lessons on Octalysis Prime and the community on Slack.

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Arturo Caudullo

Have you ever heard of the “Too Good To Go” app? If so, you will want to check out this submission for the Octalysis Level 1 Certificate. If not, you will want to check out this submission!

In this light-to-read presentation, Arturo thoroughly analyses the user journey of this experience, and offers suggestions for improvement.

Arturo diligently built out the Strategy Dashboard. He then effectively tied the conclusions from the different steps of the analysis phase to deliver a great brainstorming.

We especially like the “Proximity Bonus” which adds a sense of obligation to help the local stores, together with other users that live nearby. And the “Roulette Formula” that motivates to also visit other stores.

Congratulations, Arturo. Good work!

I’m so excited! It’s a great milestone for me, I’m so happy! Thanks for your precious feedback, I really appreciate it! Yeaaaah!

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Predrag Stefanovic

Many people are motivated to grab a bite to eat at a fast-food restaurant. Working in this industry, on the other hand, can in many cases use some more Human-Focused Design.

In this submission for the Octalysis Level 1 Certificate, Predrag takes a close look at working for the restaurant chain Duff.

Predrag made sure to cover the Human-Focused Design aspect of this submission. He added many funny images that help to keep the reader’s motivational energy high.

Congratulations, Predrag. Well done!

Thanks a lot, Dirk, Myrte for the great news. I am very grateful and happy for this achievement.

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Dustin Lehr

Cyber Security is increasingly important. Unfortunately, for many, the training to keep up-to-date with cyber security best practices is not very engaging.

If it is up to Dustin, that is about to change!

Make sure to Check out Dustin’s Player Type analysis.

Congratulations, Dustin. Well done!

Awesome!  Thanks @Dirk and @Sergio for taking the time to go over my resubmission.  Your feedback is very insightful and I learned a lot by going through it. 

I’ll continue to work on improving my Octalysis skills! ‘

Octalysis Certificate Achiever: Joel Schmidt

Here we have another great example of how Gamification can be applied to a non-digital experience.

Joel found many things that could be improved at his driving learning centre in Germany. He successfully used that energy to create a submission for the Level 1 Octalysis Certificate!

Especially the Brainstorming is worth taking a look at. Many of Joel’s ideas build on each other and strengthen each other, which is crucial for creating a synergetic user experience.

Congratulations, Joel. Well done!

I want to thank Yu-kai Chou for the knowledge you spread through the Octalysis Island. It’s a great honor for me to be able to learn from your content.
