You can enable Gold for all learners by clicking "On*,"* or you can restrict who can use Gold by assigning Groups.

Setting up Gold

Once you've enabled Gold, you can now:

  1. Choose which Groups can use Gold (if you chose "Specified groups" when enabling Gold).
  2. Set a Cap (limit) on the max amount of Gold each learner can earn in a calendar year. This is useful to align with your budget for incentives.
  3. Insert a Redemption URL for the storefront you will use. This is the website, whether yours or a third party's, where users will be able to redeem Gold.

How do I assign Gold?

Assign Gold to learning content

To assign Gold to any piece of content, whether an activity or course:

  1. Go to the Properties tab for that piece of content.
  2. Click on the Gamification section.
  3. Scroll down to the Gold section to add a "Gold Value." Enter a numerical amount here.
Three steps to add a "Gold Value" to any piece of content.

Once a learner passes the activity, course, video, e-Learning, etc., Intellum will credit the assigned amount of Gold to their profile.

Assign Gold to a credential

Assigning Gold to a credential is the same as adding Gold to any piece of content. Since credentials are tied to content, you will assign Gold on the same page under Properties > Gamification as before.

Below is a course with its Gamification settings completely filled out. Scroll through the image and note how the admin has added:

  • Skills Tags
  • Reputation
  • Credential details
  • and Gold at the very bottom (outlined with a gold box)

Once the learner earns the credential, they will see the amount of Gold credited to their profile.

Likewise, when they pass a course or activity with Gold assigned, it will display the credited amount at the top of the page.
