Badges overview

Awarding badges is a way to acknowledge students’ completion of an activity or to recognize certain skills or accomplishments. MoodleBadges call these circular merit icons “better than digital chocolate.”
Instructors can either set up criteria for earning the badges, and then students will automatically earn a badge once they fulfil the criteria, or they can skip the criteria set-up and assign a badge for some accomplishment or display of skills.
The process of awarding badges involves:

  1.  Downloading badges from an external source or creating an image/ using an image of your own (copyright considered).
  2.  Adding criteria.
  3.  Awarding and managing badges.

You can also connect to Open Badges if you are interested in the badge system beyond our institution.
