    This is great for when I need my students focusing on what we are seeing in class and not doing what they are supposed to do at home! Thanks!

    Hi Robert,
    thank you very much for this wonderful plugin for gamification. Participants need to move themselves to a particular geolocation to see more course topics, activities, and resources. Is there any idea to make it work in the mobile Moodle app? The Moodle app is able to store all course content temporarily on the mobile device so participants can "play" the course without internet and without mobile data connection.

    This would be nice. Unfortunately, I would need some assistance to do this. I have not enough time to learn about the required APIs.

    Hi Robert! To use this plugin I need a little user's guide or it is intuitive to use? What about the problem with the problem with the Boost theme mentioned above?
    Thank you. Danke sehr.

    There has not been any further information about this error. It was not even reported, what should be understood as "strange error". Hence, it was not reproducible. We use this plugin on a Moodle site with +200.000 users and have no issues.

    Hi David, the plugin availability_gps is very useful. I think that you do not need a manual to use it. I made a demo course with the geolocation plugin. You can visit this course as a guest. You will see some course topics but you will not be able to open them if you do not want to move to the correct location. Best regards, Ralf
