How to use one block for all courses?

In order to gather experience points from all the courses a student is participating in, you have to set the admin setting Where are experience points used? to 'For the whole site'. This setting is located under "Site administration > Plugins > Blocks > Level up! > General settings". Once set, any block newly or previously added will display the total experience points of your students.

How are experience points calculated?

Please refer to the Level up! documentation.

How to unlock content at a certain level?

Please refer to the Level up! documentation.

How to unlock a course at a certain level?

Shortcodes supported

What are those? Shortcodes can be used in text editors throughout Moodle to include or modify the content. The plugin Shortcodes must be installed to enable them.

Level up! comes with shortcodes to display the learner's level badge, their progress bar, or even the leaderboard anywhere you like. Shortcodes can also be used to conditionally display content according to a learner's current level. For a list of available shortcodes and their documentation, please refer to Level up! documentation.

    When importing a course the rules for Level Up are not importing. Is there a fix for this?
  • Thu, Sep 12, 2019, 11:01 AM
    Hi Colina. Could you be more specific? Backup and restore is supported, the only issue we are aware of at the moment is that rules tied to activities do not restore properly. Other rules should restore just fine.

    Hi, is there any way to include cohorts in xp rules? I have some quiz where students gain certain ammount of xp depending on the cohort he belongs to. How can I achieve this?

    Hi Johan. As stated on the github issue you raised, doing so is not possible at this point.

    I have bought the pro version of the plugin.
    I have a question . Is there a way to reset the users points for a certain course without reseting the course itself ? Ty in advance
  • Thu, Sep 26, 2019, 11:53 AM
    Hi Theodosis. Yes, at the bottom of Level up!'s report you may reset the whole course, or you may selectively reset individual students. Thank you for your support!

    Hola. Me encanta el plugin.
    Sería interesante que los estudiantes obtuvieran puntos en función de la calificación de uno o varios cuestionarios.
    Ejemplo. estudiante que consigue un 5 en la calificación del Cuestionario se le asigne 5puntos y si consigue 7 que se le asigne 7puntos

    Hi Juan, thank you for your suggestion. We're hoping to provide such feature soon!

    Would it be possible to mask the names of other students on the leader board? ex. Student Jeremy is ranked # 3 out of 15 in class, but the other 14 names are not displayed only some generic label or nothing at all just show student Jeremy is ranked 3rd of 15.

    Hi Jeremy. Yes, please find the anonymity options in the settings.

    Hi at all,
    I’d like to use Level up! as a restriction-option to activities and resources in a moodle course.
    How can I add Level up! results (level/xp/points) as an option for restrict access settings in activities or resources in moodle admin configurations?
    Is it a standard feature („unlocking content“) or do I need Level up! Plus?

    I will be grateful for any help you can provide.

    Best regards,

    I am using the plug-in, but having no success on this one particular rule:
    "ANY of the conditions are true"
    >Quiz: quiz attempt submitted
    I have the activity completion enabled for the item and it is not alowing the students to add points for attempting the quiz.
    Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi Pia. You don't need Level up! Plus, please search for the "enrol_xp" and "availability_xp" plugins. Thank you.
