We are excited to introduce a new feature in Hyperskill, Challenges!
We believe that learning should be an engaging and personalized process, and Challenges are designed to take your learning journey to the next level. In this article, we will walk you through the ins and outs of Challenges, how they work, and the benefits they offer.
The Structure of Challenges
Sometime before the start, the Challenge announcement appears in the study plan.
The Challenge announcement specifies the dates of the challenge—start and end.
The Challenge description specifies the activity to be performed on Hyperskill.
A timer counts down the time until the Challenge starts.
Types of Challenges
Challenges can be for different types of activities on Hyperskill:
- Solve any problem or just the challenge of the day
- Solve any topic
- Complete a project stage
- Complete an entire project
When a Challenge is started, the map shows the progress. The progress reflects the number of activities you have to complete for the entire duration of the Challenge, as well as the time you have to complete each activity.
Based on the status of the progress indicators, you can determine what you need to do in the current time period and whether you have managed to complete the activity within the required timeframe.
Rewards for Completion
We know it's not easy to challenge yourself, so we've provided a reward: gems or a discount on a month's subscription. Further on, we'll provide more details on the possible ways to complete the challenge.
If you've completed all the conditions of the Challenge, you'll be receiving the main prize. Keep it up! Don't forget to click the Collect Reward button to receive your reward.
Don't worry if you didn't manage to fully complete the Challenge! Those who complete more than half of the Challenge tasks may also receive an incentive prize in some cases.
If you didn't have the opportunity to join the Challenge or achieve the minimum required level of progress, don't worry. Next time, you will surely succeed! We are already working on creating a new challenge to make your journey in the world of knowledge more exciting.
Please note that the Challenges start at 00:00 EST (-5 UTC). The time allotted to complete one task in a challenge is updated in the same way.
