With the progression of information and computer technology, computers are used as a tool in nearly every industry, including in education. At the onset of COVID-19, computers became essential for providing remote instruction options for curriculum that had been delivered face-to-face. This is also true for the Career Analysis Organization of America (CAOA), an organization that teaches professional skills. CAOA needs an online platform that enables students to receive, complete, and submit course material, and be able to dialogue with their instructor. More importantly, CAOA wants the platform to be interactive to offer students the ability to apply their knowledge and motivate their progression through the course. In order to address CAOA’s needs, a web application, which was developed by applying the SCRUM development approach, includes a simulation game that is connected to Google Classroom. Various scenarios this game includes are stores, jobs, coffee shops, and banks. There is a reward system that is based on submitted assignments in the designated Google Classroom, which will allow the shopping experiences to serve as motivation for students to complete course assignments. This online project provides the team the opportunity to develop a web application tailored for students’ interests in professional careers and trades to envision their ideal life.
