What is a course Leaderboard?
Badgr's course Leaderboard is a privacy-aware method of allowing students to track each other's progress through a Canvas course learning pathway – adding an element of gamification to their learning. The leaderboard scrolls and paginates through the full list of students and course objectives.
Enabling the Badgr course Leaderboard in Canvas
Once enabled, instructors and students will be able to access the Leaderboard, showing course progress sorted by which students have earned the most badges. Teachers can view students' real names, but students will only see the randomly-generated animal nicknames for each other by default.
Here is what the Leaderboard looks like in Canvas for an instructor. Instructors also have access to an Objectives tab (students do not). Note that each student's real name is listed above their nickname.
Instructors can also search for specific students by entering text into the search field.
Here is what the Leaderboard looks like in Canvas for a student. Note the logged-in student in this example ("Kelly Bob") will see their real name listed above their nickname. The student is ranked second for having only earned 3 of 4 available badges.
