MyPad was a gameplay element integrated with the MyDay online course that provided incentives for real world job experience. Students were given a basement room as their own hang out space to chat virtually.
Students could furnish and decorate their space, and invite friends to hang out in their virtual space.
Points or “Cogs” were awarded for completing assignments in a timely manner, and for grades earned on each assignment.
Students who did well in their MyDay courseware were able to afford larger rooms with more amenities, such as luxurious furniture, floor and wall coverings.
In this way, students who excelled in their online courses were rewarded for their hard work.
