Gamification Leaderboard

Overview

Leaderboard modules allow you to display the current Point and Badge standing of a group of users. The Leaderboard can be site wide or filtered to specific groups of Learners. Leaderboards sort from top to bottom by activity point accumulation and will also display badges earned. Leaderboards are useful for Learners so that they might see how their achievements compare against others within a similar Team or Group.
