Since we originally launched version 1.0.0 of the Achievement Badges add-on, it has been a huge hit. With it installed, you can award points to users who complete specific tasks within your LMS, and even designate badges for your users to earn as they interact with the course material. It’s an easy and fun way to inject some gamification into your learning management system.
Today I am pleased to announce some additional features that have been added. In the original version, you had the ability to assign points or badges whenever someone completed – now you have the ability to assign a unique point value and/or badge for specific courses, lessons, and quizzes. Simply insert the appropriate ID. So, let’s say that you have a course with multiple quizzes, and then a final quiz. Now, you can give your final quiz more “weight”, awarding more points to someone who passes, and even more points if they get a perfect score.
In addition to this nifty update, the add-on has also been outfitted with better WordPress multi-site support, which allows you to use the Achievement Badges features across a network of sites. Also included is a new dashboard widget on the admin panel which will display recent activity.
It is our philosophy at LearnDash that you cannot afford an LMS that is behind the times. Being driven by learning industry professionals, we have our ear to the ground on the latest trends, and we will make sure they are available to you at no additional cost.
