The first avenue for earning points is by playing the game and meeting their business targets in the various quests (e.g. make a minimum of R400 000 in revenue in Module 3 of gameplay). Learners acquire gaming points from this category.
Learners then gain points in another category of points called XP points by reading certain research-articles provided in the game or by having conversations with non-player characters such as mentors or lawyers and bankers in the game. These tasks give them experience points essentially and trigger learning.
Learners also gain points from submitting assignments after each module in the challenge.
