Hi,

Please tell me the use of points we earn during challanges.

Hi Anant,
 

How do I earn points and badges?
Point are earned when you complete each unit. Badges are automatically earned when you finish all the units in a module and are displayed on your Salesforce Developers profile.

How can I share my progress with others?
Whenever you earn points and badges, you’ll have the option to show off your achievements via Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Badges and points will also be displayed on your Salesforce Developers profile, so you can share a link to your profile with anyone you wish.



Please refer to the FAQ's:

Thanks,

I like the concept of Trail Head as it makes Salesforce Learning fun.   As for the use of points , I must say that earning them   just to show off doesn't really make much of a value.  Since they're on the track of making this sort of a challenge , they could put the points to better use. 

They can have the points as currency.  Some of us might be stuck with the challenges , and can make use of the points to give hints or probably guides how to solve the challenge.  That'll be something to look forward to.
