Your Canvas server must first be approved to connect to Badgr. If you are the first teacher or administrator to use Badgr on your Canvas installation, or if you see an error message that says your server is not yet authorized to use Badgr, look at the instructions for requesting to use Badgr on my Canvas server.

Other options

Badgr for Canvas may also be added to all courses in an account at once by an administrator. See How do I add Badgr to a Canvas Account or Sub-Account?

To add Badgr to a course in Canvas
