Canvas Badges using Badgr

Ended Sep 24, 2018


Full course description


This synchronous webinar will demonstrate how to use badges in Canvas using Badgr. Badgr is a free and open source platform for badge issuing, management, and tracking user achievements. You can use badges to help motivate students to complete the content in your course. Badges can be quickly and easily added to the modules in your course, so that students can unlock a badge each time they complete a module. To make things even easier, the Badgr tool comes with a built in badge designer, where you can either design a badge from scratch or upload your own badge image.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  1. Create a module with a progression of steps or activities
  2. Add Badgr to a Canvas course
  3. Adjust the settings of a badge to manage who receives the badge and when
  4. Create a badge icon using the Badgr badge designer
  5. Display badges on courses for students and help them share their own badges on their Canvas profile

Session Date: September 24th from 12:30 to 1:30 pm
