participation. The more we participate, the more we points we earn.
Stars are earned when learning paths are completed at
Our profiles show details about each of our
learning efforts but it's sometime useful to get a quick glance at another users learning progress. The small
stars you see under each of our avatars helps us get a quick look at another users level of understanding.

"likes", participating in forum discussions, learning at

Moderators can increase (or decrease) points. Our team of moderators does not arbitrarily reduce user
points but does keep an eye out for points that seem unfairly earned or artificially high. At their discretion,
they may make corrections.
