Manage the coin earning rules on Moodle and Totara

Modified on Fri, 04 Mar 2022 at 01:24 PM

Here are the steps to customize the coin earning rules:

1.  Link your Moodle/Totara site via the URL and site token for this feature to work.  See Step #6 in our documentation on installing Motrain or contact your hosting partner for help.

2.  Turn completion tracking on for the course (Course Administration > Edit Course Settings > Completion Tracking > Yes).  In the local plugin, be sure to set the coin Reward method to "Dashboard rules" for each section/cohort.

3.  Set the criteria for each course and activity completion (ex:  minimum grade to pass).

4.   Go to  and click the "Custom" tab to view coin values for different activities.  We have provided you with default settings and recommend you start by just using the Global settings. 

Under Course overrides, set the coin values specific to a course.   You can add a course and customize the coin value for completing it and customize the coin values for specific activity completion within the course.  These coin values override the Global settings.

Under Coin Settings you can customize the coin icon and name in the block.
