The Security Journey Platform Tournament feature provides a competitive experience for learners, where they complete hands-on lessons or experiments in exchange for tournament points. Tournaments can be created for your entire SDLC - developers and non-developers alike.
Tournaments can be used to engage your learners through competition and provide additional motivation by making it to the top of the leaderboard when the contest is complete!
To host a successful tournament, we recommend thinking about a prize for the top three learners and advertise it as part of your tournament communications. A little can go a long way! We've found things like company branded stickers, company swag (t-shirt, mug etc.) or even trophies will get folks engaged and stoke the competitive spirit.
Lessons and assignments can be auto-generated or selected manually
Customizable pre-written tournament notifications enable admins to communicate easily with participants
Duration estimates indicate how quickly the tournament could be completed
Enhanced scoring including attempts, hints, success, and coding accuracy all driving points achieved
To create a new tournament navigate to Admin > Tournaments > + ADD NEW TOURNAMENT.
Tournament Name & Start/End Dates
By default the Tournament name will be pre-populated with today’s date but can be edited. Tournaments will not start until the date reaches the chosen start date.
By default, the tournament is assigned to everyone in the organization. However, Admins can choose the audience by:
Uploading a CSV file
Add emails manually, separated by a comma
Prizes and Contact Info
These fields will be displayed to all learners on the Tournament overview.
Prizes (optional): Define the rewards that your learners can win.
Bragging rights? Stickers? Gift cards?
Contact info (required): If users have questions about the tournament, how can they reach you?
We provide you with two types of tournaments:
Security Journey chooses the Tournament content, based on the filters an admin selects
This is the default type
Admins pick and choose the specific content learners receive as part of the Tournament
Available Modules Filters
We provide you with a number of filters to make it easier to drill down and find the right content for your tournament.
If you choose to stick with the default Autogenerate option and have no filters applied, we will automatically select 4 modules from our catalog. You can remove lessons if you would like to have less than 4. You can also remove all four and it will select 4 NEW lessons.
Additionally, we provide you with an estimated time to complete so that both you and your learners are aware of how long it will take to participate in the Tournament.
Based on the information and exercises chosen, we will auto-generate a Tournament Summary that will be displayed to all Tournament participants.
