Intro to Celebrations

Do you have a memory of a favorite celebration in your life? Maybe a graduation or a special birthday?

Celebrations make up some of our most favorite memories, but they’ve never been part of a learning platform. Until now!

Xperiencify just released customizable celebrations for use in your courses, and it’s going to change the way your clients and students EXPERIENCE your course.

Here’s why celebrations are the thing your students never knew they needed:

When your students start your course, they’re so excited about the potential for themselves. But then they have to buckle down and do the work, and many of them start to take their eyes off the prize. In other platforms, the “win” for finishing a module is- yay- they get more work! But in Xperiencify, they get a CELEBRATION to reinforce the fact that they hit the target and are on their way to success.

You did it! Way to go! Congrats! Good work! Keep it up- I believe in you!

Don’t we all want to hear that? Don’t we all want to have the recognition that says we’ve accomplished something?

You can even incorporate Custom Fields into your Celebrations! Just create the Custom Field first in your Account section, and then you'll see the option to add the Custom Fields token into your Celebration. Just hit the forward slash: / and you'll pull up the "Tokens" menu.

Last note: if you're unsure how you'd use Celebrations because your course deals with more serious topics, then we suggest replacing the word “celebrations” with “recognition” -- and simply find images and sounds that match your topic or vibe.

We all need recognition and validation, and to feel like we're making progress, and our Celebrations feature will help you do that, allowing clients and student to feel good about completing significant milestones in the course.

So, ready to add your first celebration? You can set one up in about a minute! Check out our simple instructions for doing just that!.

Can I Add My Own Custom Animations?

YES! You can create and add custom animations that show YOUR branding and vibe, and we'll upload those to our database for you to use when you create your Celebrations.

Custom animations MUST be in this specific format:

  • Created as a JSON file.
  • Each Animation must be under 500 kb. (It won't work if they're any larger).
  • Once you've created a Celebration, you can test it here to make sure it works:
  • (If you need help with creating these, you can hire a JSON animator on

Once you've validated that it works, please email your completed files to [email protected], and our team will upload them to the database for you to use in your course.

If you choose to upload your own custom animations, these will be available in our public database

Important Note About the Welcome Celebration

Quick heads up: on many browsers, there are safeguards in place that automatically disable sound, when you first interact with a new website.

This means that in many cases, the Welcome Celebration will NOT play the sound for your student.

(Nothing's wrong, here.. and all the following Celebrations will play the sound).

Fortunately, your students can still enjoy the animations as a surprise "Welcome" to your course!
