You’ve probably seen a few of our Adventure & Reward Videos. These are a mix of interesting and weird videos that are displayed when you unlock badges. These videos make learning a lot more fun!

Previously, these Reward Videos did not follow a specific sequence, which means they felt slightly unpredictable and random. Today we’re replacing them with a brand new Reward Video experience.

If you’re looking for the old Reward Videos or you’re curious, check out the Treehouse YouTube Channel’s Just for Fun playlist:

If you’ve earned a few Reward Videos and feel attached, you can still view all of them on our YouTube page in the ‘Just for Fun’ Playlist.

Instead of a ‘random’ Reward Video experience, you will now unlock videos in a specific sequence that tell the story of Treehouse island.


The new Treehouse Reward Videos are inspired by the serialized films that appeared in movie theaters in the early 20th Century.

Treehouse Reward Videos will unlock at a rate of 1 Chapter for each 4 badges that you earn. To unlock them all you’ll have to earn more than 50% of all Treehouse badges.

We recently added Learning Adventures, but these new videos should help to amplify the feeling of being on an adventure and give additional incentive to unlock new badges.


What happens next? You’ll have to earn 4 more badges to find out in Chapter 2!

The Arrival is the first Treehouse Reward Video that you unlock. The Arrival tells the story of how Nick Pettit became a Treehouse teacher.

Nick is a regular contributor to this blog in addition to being Treehouse’s Chief Content Officer and the teacher of Build a Simple Website, the first project that you’ll begin with if you select the Become a Web Designer Learning Adventure.

Here’s the trailer for The Arrival:

After The Arrival, you’ll start unlocking Show’s Over, starring Jim Hoskins, an expert teacher at Treehouse.

Show’s Over takes you through Jim’s backstory and how he became a teacher at Treehouse.

Next you’ll unlock the Great Escape, with Amit Bjlani, Treehouse Content Leader and iOS Teacher.

We’re really excited about these and we hope you are too! Huzzah!

  2. I haven’t seen a Dean’s List in a minute. These are pretty cool. I know it is REALLY hard to keep all the extras coming – everything has a hierarchy, I deal with content Wish Lists too. Keep me in mind for one of these down the road. Thanks Treehouse Islanders!
