Classcraft is a website that teachers can use to "gamify" their classroom content and behavior expectations. The design of the website is based on concepts from fantasy games and literature with character classes such as mage, healer, and warrior.

They are rewarded by their teacher for making progress or demonstrating good behavior with experience points (XP).
