Make the switch to Badgr today! 

As of April 2018, the process to retire Canvabadges has begun.

The good folks at Instructure don't want these achievements to disappear, so old Canvabadges are being migrated to the Badgr platform. This allows users to keep their badge awards in perpetuity while also creating the opportunity for instructors to continue issuing them.

This migration will occur in multiple phases beginning May 2018 and ending in October 2018, with a final pass migration to ensure all the awards are moved over.
