Integration with Celo Academy

Aligned with Celo Academy’s mission to encourage collaborative learning, this leaderboard feature integrates seamlessly with our platform. It enhances the user experience by adding a new layer of interaction and reward to your usual activities, fostering an engaging and vibrant community.

Use Cases

Imagine posting an insightful question or contribution to a discussion. As other members find your content helpful and ‘like’ it, you’re not just gaining appreciation but also points that move you up the leaderboard. It’s about learning, sharing, and also a friendly competition to keep everyone engaged and motivated.

Technical Requirements

You don’t need any specific technical knowledge to enjoy this feature. Simply continue participating in the Celo Academy community as usual, and the system will automatically track your points.


This feature works seamlessly with all the existing resources and tools within the Celo Academy community. Regardless of your preferred learning modules or discussion spaces, the leaderboard enhances your community experience.


The gamification system is designed to reward genuine contributions. It’s important to keep interactions meaningful and avoid participating solely for the sake of earning points. Over time, the algorithm might be tweaked to ensure fair and productive gaming.

Impact on Performance or Efficiency

This feature not only makes your participation in the community more enjoyable but also enhances the quality of interactions. As more users engage to climb up the leaderboard, the sharing of ideas, solutions, and experiences within the community increases, enriching the overall learning environment.


The leaderboard feature comes at no additional cost to you. It’s a part of our effort to provide an enriching and engaging experience for all users.

Future Developments

We plan to refine this feature based on your feedback. Future enhancements could include new activities that earn you points and periodic contests or challenges to spice up the leaderboard race.

Support and Resources
