Prerequisites

You have created an issuer in Badgr (see How do I create an issuer profile in Badgr?)

You may want to work with your team to define your set of badges and how you intend for them to work with Canvas module objectives (if applicable) before creating badges. For easy collaborative system design discussions, you can download and use the Badgr Simple Learning Pathway Worksheet (XLSX).

If you wish to edit a badge you've already created, see How do I edit a badge?

Creating a badge in Badgr

  1. Log in to your account at https://Badgr.io or https://ca.Badgr.io
  2. Select the ISSUERS tab.
  3. Create a new issuer or select the issuer you would like to create a badge for.
  4. Scroll past the Pathways and Groups sections.
  5. Select ADD BADGE CLASS


Basic Information & Criteria

  1. Add a badge image:
    1. Upload an image – see What are the recommended specifications for badge images?
    2. Use an auto-generated image – select the "(generate random)" link above the image dialog. Click the link until you find an image you'd like to use.

  2. Enter the following:
    1. Badge Name (e.g., "Founding Documents Badge")
    2. Badge Description. What does this badge represent? (e.g., "Learn all you need to know about the Constitution and Declaration of Independence")
    3. Criteria URL or text. What must be done to earn the badge? (e.g., "https://badgr.io/public/badges/founding-documents-badge/criteria" or "Students must submit an essay that demonstrates...")

 

Add Optional Details

  1. Issuers can add optional details to the badge metadata (if appropriate) by selecting one or both options, Alignment and/or Tags.


       



  2. Alignment - Consider adding this information if your content aligns with educational standards such as the Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) or ISTE standards.
  3. Tags - Tags are like keywords that you may add tags to badges to help people find your badges more easily. Examples of tags may include but are not limited to: programming, open-source, bit-coin, volunteer work, hand-crafted, dogs, space, and many others.
