Admin Area > Settings > Default Settings Panel
Within the admin area of Curatr, administrators can select some organisation defaults for comments, points and leaderboards.
Note: Any organisation level settings around comments, view times and point allocations can be altered for each course and object level.
Assigning Point Values
A Curatr best practice is to correlate points with effort. The more effort that is required in a task, the more points should be awarded.
For example, here are some good guidelines to follow when assigning point values to an end user task:
- Viewing (which doesn't take much effort compared to the other point-awarding activities) = 1 point.
- Commenting (which takes more effort as they usually have to view the object, read the question, formulate an answer, type and the answer) = 5 points
- Contributing (which usually takes the most effort as they have to read the challenge, create a document, curate and example, record a video, upload/link to it, provide a rationale for their submission) = 10 points.
By taking some time to think about these Default Game Settings early in your time working in Curatr, you can save yourself some considerable time down the road, as these settings will automatically be transferred to any new courses you create. Don't worry though, if any settings aren't quite right for future content created in Curatr, you can override them at the course/object level.
Note: Leaderboard Opt Out cannot be overridden. If this option is selected, all of your users will be hidden from the leaderboards within courses unless they explicitly wish to opt-in. This opt-in is done on a user by user basis, from their profile settings.
