Animated Characters with PowerPoint Challenge

Well, the deadline has passed. I received NO submission to the challenge.

Is it too hard? Is it not interesting enough? Is the deadline too soon? Is the prize too small? Is the technique you can learn from the challenge not worth putting in any effort? Are you too busy? Is the timing of the challenge at the wrong time?

I have no clue!

But this illustrates a typical scenario of "informal" learning - we may have a lot of lurkers, but only a very small percentage of the participants will do something.

This is what this blog is about. How can we design activities that can solicit a more general participations? In a formal learning environment, that's relatively easy. You enforce the need to handing in assignment. In informal situation like this, what can you do? Any suggestion is welcome.
