Abstract: Reward has become an important role to increase students' motivation in traditional classroom learning. This research designed an In-game Card as Education Reward (ICER) web-based system which helps teachers give students reward while students have good performance in learning activities such as assignment, presentation, and exam. Whenever students complete a learning activity, their teacher can choose different type and rarity in-game cards and deliver the cards to the students by using ICER web-based management system. Students can redeem the reward on ICER website and receive in-game cards in the game. When students have better performance in terms of doing learning activities, they will receive more powerful in-game items from ICER. With these powerful in-game cards' help, students can have more fun in the game-play and may put more efforts on doing their homework and may be actively participated in the discussions in the class for getting better rewards.
