Good morning everyone. I have used Canvas in the past but I am not familiar with community forum. Can anyone advise me on how to obtain points using tutorials?
Thanks for your question Jean Eaton. As Adam Williams mentioned, there are a list of activities that can trigger points. While this list is not comprehensive, every online community will enable different activities. Within this list, we are only leveraging the first 3. But again, there are many other activities that yield points.
If you check out the following documents: What is the Canvas Community Reward System? and How do I give a badge to another user in the Community? you will find a list of badges and the tasks associated with earning one-time points. However, we also award on-going points (without an associated badge to boot) for doing more frequent things in the community, such as:
Hope this helps shed some extra light on the gamification aspects of the community engagement.
Hi Jean, I'm going to move this question to the Meta Community Group since your question is about the Community rather than the Canvas LMS itself. Your question will get direct and focused attention there.
Hi Jean, you can find the documentation for "Earning Status Points" here. I will copy and paste the info too just to make things easier also.
Depending on how your community is set up, you may earn points when you involve yourself in the following types of activity:
Thanks for the link Adam!
