To improve the gamification in your course and increasing student interaction, you can use the Ranking block. Ranking block which is now available for Moodle 2.7 and 2.8, thanks to Willian Mano.
The ranking block works together with the moodle course completion. In the moodle course you configure the criteria to the end of the course. The ranking block monitors these activities and add points to the students based on accomplishing the activities. There are different ways to gain points.
- If a student completes a HTML page the ranking adds 2 points.
- If a student completes an assignment and it is ended only when the student receive a grade. The ranking add 2 points plus the grade points to the student. You can configure the default points in the block configuraion.
