The idea is to have an online platform, Interchallenge, that creates a connection between learner teams from around the world and companies in a fun way. Using gamification methods like rewards, competence and risks, members are encourage to solve a real life problems from a company.
Through the challenge members receive online courses in different aspects and methodologies like Design Thinking, Visual Thinking, Game thinking and Lean Startup
How does it works?
A company decides to participate in Interchallenge, they subscribe (a monthly fee is require) and post their problem. One member of the company should do a follow up to the development of this problem in the platform. This member has also the right to have access to the different online courses.
Students from different disciplines from a hight education institution (different parts of the world) subscribe to the challenge, they gather each week to solve the weekly challenge that should be deliver at the end of the week. They will also receive a weekly course that should be apply to this challenge.
According to their performance they will get points and go through the different phases, they might also receive goodies from the companies as rewards from especial challenges. At the middle of the competition two teams are chosen to continue, one international team and one local team. With the feed paid by the company, students will be able to travel and meet their partners and continues working in the solution.
At the end of the Interchallenge, students deliver a solution to the problematic.
