How to build a fully Gamified Moodle Course


A basic understanding of Moodle
You should be able to use a PC at a beginner level
You should be able to use the Internet and Web Browsers at a beginner level


This course has been specifically designed to show learners how to create a fully gamified course called Planet Learn, using existing Moodle content!I’m going to begin the course by showing learners how to create their own Moodle instance on their own computer. This will be used throughout the course so that you can test and try all of the things I teach you.I will explain what gamification is, the concept of the course and how to effectively plan and map Moodle courses.The tools required section looks at installing all the Moodle Plugins you will require for the Planet Learn game, including the Stash Plugin, the Stash Availability Plugin, the Course Completion Plugin, the Quizventure Plugin and the Sharing Cart.Next, I will show learners how to create a new course in Moodle, how to add animations and graphics and configure course topics to convert them to levels of the Planet Learn Game.Then the fun begins, with the three sections which look at creating the Planet Learn game itself.The Farm Introduction section is first, and in this section I will show learners how to configure the Moodle topic with content, activity completion, restrict access criteria, Stash items, Stash trade items, animations and graphics, badges and even show learners how to test the game so far.The next two topics, the Ice Planet and the Fire Planet are setup in a similar way, showing learners all the tips and tricks they require to setup and configure the Planet Learn game and associated levels.The Final Thoughts section completes the course, where we shall look into extra levels, accessibility, uploading your own content, alternative level configurations and course completion.So, if you want to inspire your students and revolutionise their online learning, why not sign up today?
