Just Use It!

  • Prize – College Cup points
  • Points will be awarded for various activities.
    • Your college will earn 1 point every day you log in to learn.med. Only 1 login per student per day will count for a point. These points will accumulate throughout the competition to determine the winning college at the end of the competition.
    • At the end of the competition, Prashanth Fenn, Natalie Hillerson, and Troy Sterling will award an appropriate amount of points for the winning college towards the College Cup competition.
    • Periodically throughout the pilot, you will have the opportunity to complete a short survey. Surveys will be anonymous; however, you will need to identify your college. Surveys will be worth multiple points. You will receive an email with a link to the survey.
  • Points are accumulated as a college rather than an individual
  • Points will be weighted based on college size. Both weighted and unweighted scores will be reported.
  • Progress will be posted at the beginning of each week on this site.
