Rewards, Progress and Measurement

Rewards, Progress and Measurement (RPM)

Key elements of gamification (such as points, badges and a newsfeed) are embedded into the on-demand learning environment, allowing subscribers to more readily feel success. It breaks down ongoing Business English learning into small, achievable tasks. And subscribers are able to easily track their performance by working toward specific and meaningful goals—related to language skills, business competencies and essential on-boarding activities—and are empowered to share their progress with peers in a fun and rewarding way.
