Prize Boxes Settings

Prize Boxes allow students to celebrate their progress in a course and provide positive feedback. They can also encourage students to earn more points to unlock additional prize boxes.

Open the Component Settings

On the Delphinium page, in Teacher or Periscope View, click the Settings icon in the top right corner of the page.

The "Settings" dialog will open.

Click the Delphinium Settings tab in the tab bar at the top of the Settings dialog.

The “Delphinium Settings” tab will be displayed.

The Delphinium Settings tab has two sub tabs, "Course Settings" and "Component Settings." If necessary, click Component Settings.

The "Component Settings" sub tab will be displayed.

If your course has more than one tab, you will see those tabs mirrored in the "secondary tab bar". You may need to click the correct tab in the secondary tab bar to display the icon for the component you wish to edit.

If necessary, you can mouse over the icons for "descriptions" and "thumbnail images" of components The "mouse over tool tip" also includes a "Find Me" button—mouse over the Find Me button to make the tools menu transparent and outline the "component" for that "icon" in yellow. You can use these features to ensure that you are editing the correct settings for your target component.

Click the Prize Boxes icon.

The “Prize Boxes Settings” dialog will display.

Configure Prize Box Thresholds

Prize box thresholds are the number of points a student needs to earn to unlock a prize box.

You do not need to modify the settings. They will be automatically configured by the Delphinium Configuration AI based on the "Max Points" configured in the "Delphinium Course Settings". The Delphinium Configuration AI will make early prize boxes easier to earn and they will get increasingly more difficult.

However, if you want, you can manually enter thresholds to override the Delphinium Configuration AI settings to any threshold you choose. One of the benefits of using manually set thresholds is that you can change the order they are displayed on the page. Prize boxes are ordered by threshold from lowest to highest.

Configure Other Settings

  • Fireworks Message: Edit the message displayed by the fireworks prize box.

  • Show remaining points in locked tooltips: Indicate whether or not prize boxes will display how many more points students need to earn to unlock a prize box.
