How Users Can Get Energy Points:
- Users can get 1500 (or 2100) energy points for completing a computer programming challenge in the Computer Science section. The difficult ones usually give more energy points.
- Users earn 750 energy points for each video watched for the first time plus 100 bonus points for completion. The bonus points do not appear on the activity/progress chart but are added to the user's running total.
- Users now earn 100 energy points for each video watched for the second or more times. Minutes also accrue towards a listener badge like Ludicrous Listener.
- Users can get 75 energy points for each problem answered correctly in a skill the first time they practice it.
- Users can get 50 energy points for each problem they answer correctly in a mastery challenge.
- Users can get 5 energy points for each problem they answer correctly in a skill they have already practiced. They will also get 100 points for completion of that particular quiz.
- Users can also get additional energy points from earning badges like Da Vinci.
- And from watching part of a video.
Currently, users can now see their energy points on the new personalized homepage, Learning Dashboard or in their User profile. In the mission screen, the user's energy points will be shown to the right of the current streak, and to the left of the badge count.
