Delphinium includes an avatar system designed to help students celebrate and to give positive feedback for progress in the course. It encourages students to do more work at higher quality by unlocking avatar options when students earn more points. Avatars also allow students to express their individuality in a fun and creative way in a course. This helps students integrate the course experience into their learning identity. In addition, when courses also use the leaderboard, students can share their avatars with each other and build "social presence" in a course. This includes the ability to "like" each other's avatar. This helps students connect with each other and can improve engagement in a course.
Note: Experience has shown that not all students will create an avatar, but those that do can have a lot of fun expressing themselves.
Configure Avatar Level Thresholds
The avatar component unlocks avatar parts for students to use in their avatar when they earn enough points to exceed each level's point threshold. The point value for each threshold is configured in the "Avatar Settings".
Note: The Delphinium Configuration AI will automatically configure the point value for each avatar level threshold based on the "Max Points" value set in Delphinium's course settings. If you update the "Max Points" settings in Delphinium's course settings, the Delphinium Configuration AI will automatically update the avatar level thresholds accordingly. The Delphinium Configuration AI will automatically configure the avatar level thresholds so that lower levers are easier to exceed, and they get more difficult as the levels increase. However, if you like, you can manually update thresholds to match any progression you prefer.
Update the number value for any level you wish to configure manually.
