Overview

This plugin provides two leaderboards for awarded badges. The first leaderboard shows the available badges sorted by the number of users owning this badge. The second one shows all users sorted by the number of badges owned by them.

There is one badge ladder for site badges and one for course badges which can be enabled for every course separately. For each badge ladder you can enable an anonymous mode to hide the names of users.

Installation

  1. Download the BS Badge Ladder plugin.
  2. Unzip it into your moodle/local/ directory.
  3. Make sure you have badges enabled on your Moodle system
  4. Login to your Moodle as administrator and go to "Site administration -> Notifications" to trigger the installation process.

Using the plugin

The site badge ladder can be found by going to "Site pages -> Site badge ladder" in the navigation block.

The course badge ladder can be found by going to "Badges -> Course badge ladder" in the current course menu in the navigation block.

Administration

Administrators and managers can go to the badge ladder settings page on "Site administration -> Plugins -> Local Plugins -> Badge Ladder". There you can setup the site badge ladder and the course badge ladder:

  • Enable site badge ladder (enablesystemladder):
    • The site badge ladder can be enabled and disabled for the whole page.
  • Anonymize useres in site student badge ladder (anonymizesystemstudentbadgeladder):

    • If course badge ladder is allowed it can be (de-)activated for each course separately.
