Consider introducing your rewards program through your existing channels like social media and email.  As a more permanent reference, you should include details about Motrain in the Information tabs found in the block or on your store page.  Consider sharing:


  1. How to access your store.
  2. How and why virtual currency is earned.  Earning coins is feedback, so be clear on how students can grow their earnings.
  3. How much they’ll earn for certain actions (share your economy settings).  Ensure students see a connection between the number of coins they'll earn for certain actions/completions.
  4. Any relevant information about their redemptions (ex: contact info in case of a problem)


Here’s an example or template you can use:
