With the Absorb Engage upgrade, you can foster an environment of healthy competition among learners with the Leaderboard feature. Learners can work their way up in the Leaderboard ranks by completing Courses, Curricula, Instructor-Led Courses (ILC), and earning Competencies.
Learners can belong to more than one Leaderboard, and are awarded points for:
- Online Course completion
- ILC completion
- Curricula completion
- Earning a competency
- Making a comment on a course
