Do you teach multiple sections of the same class? Are you looking to use Goosechase with one (or more) of your classes? In our experience, creating a Goosechase Experience for each section of a class produces the best results.

To illustrate how to do this, consider the following example:

Mr. Brian teaches 3 sections of 10th Grade Science. It’s the first day of the semester and he’d like to run a Goosechase Experience with his students to review the safety equipment of their classroom and key items discussed in the course outline.

Ultimately, Mr. Brian is going to end up with 4 individual Experiences (1 for each section and 1 template). However, each will have identical Missions.

To start, he creates a new Experience from goosechase.com. This will act as a template that he will use for each of his sections.

After adding in the Experience details and Missions, Mr. Brian can now create an Experience for each section of his science class. To create an Experience for each section, he visits the My Experiences page and chooses to duplicate his template as shown in the screenshot below:

As Mr. Brian has 3 sections, he duplicates his template Experience 3 times. Once duplicated, he edits the name and description of each game to include the period number. He’ll instruct students from each section to join the appropriate Experience based on the period they’re in.

Mr. Brian now has 3 Experiences, each of which has the same base set of Missions, but can now be edited and run independently.

By adopting this approach, Mr. Brian is able to monitor the results separately, have unique start/stop times for each Experience (based on when the period’s actually start and stop), and keep it competitive for students (by allowing students to only view leaderboard data of that section’s teams!).
