BadgeOS achievements and badges earned from a wide array of Tutor learning management system activity.
The “BadgeOS Tutor LMS Add-on” allows learners to earn achievements and badges from virtually every course, lesson and quiz activity available in the Tutor learning management system. When activated, BadgeOS admins will see a new “TutorLMS Activity” menu in their “Required Steps” manager when editing or creating any achievement or badge.
Note: You will need to install the free BadgeOS plugin™ (version 1.2 or higher) to use the BadgeOS Tutor LMS Add-on. You will also need the Tutor LMS plugin v1.6.9 or higher installed, available from wordpress.org.
BadgeOS™ turns your WordPress site into an achievement and badging system. And with Tutor LMS enabled on your site, badges are not only awarded by activities such as making submissions, earning points, completing required achievements, and making site and community contributions, but also by completing Tutor LMS courses, lessons and quizzes. Define the achievements, organize the badge requirements any way you like, and choose from and combine a range of BadgeOS and Tutor LMS activity options to determine whether each task or requirement has been achieved.
New ways to define achievements and give badges for Tutor LMS activity
In addition to all of the out-of-the-box features in BadgeOS core, the BadgeOS Tutor LMS Add-on allows you to award achievements and badges based on these additional triggers:
