Drip7 is a fun-to-use, gamified, mobile-based micro-learning tool that teaches safe computing by asking one simple question a day, seven questions a week. These daily questions are called Drips.
How does Drip7 work?
Drips come in the form of multiple-choice questions, fill-in-the-blanks, true or false questions, watch-and-learn videos with follow-up questions and answering questions based on a diagram.
Players earn points for each daily question they answer correctly, earning badges along the way, and top scorers are added to a leaderboard which resets each month. The top three competitors at the end of each month will be added to a draw to win an iPad, with the draw taking place at the begining of December.
If you skip a day, don’t worry, the questions are cumulative. The next time you open Drip7, you’ll have two questions waiting. Skip three days and you’ll have three questions to answer in your bank. But beware, if you don’t answer your daily question on the day it’s received, you won’t be able to get full points for the right answer. May the odds be ever in your favor.
What’s in it for you?
Drip7 combines delivery, content, and science to create an IT security training platform that drives behavior change and increases knowledge retention.
Learn on the go, in a fun, social, and engaging environment with your friends and peers. Gain bragging rights by hitting the top of the leaderboard. Collect badges along the way and develop lifelong cyber security skills that will help protect you online.
As a bonus, at the end of each month, the top three leaders on the leaderboard will be entered into a draw to win an iPad. The draw will take place in January 2023.
