Sharing badges on LinkedIn

There are 2 different ways you can share badges to LinkedIn; as a post to your LinkedIn Feed or to the Certifications section of your profile.

Sharing badges to your LinkedIn Feed

  1. From the Award Email, Badgr Backpack or within a Canvas course, select the badge you wish to share.
  2. Select the LinkedIn button.
  3. If you are not logged in, you will be prompted to enter your LinkedIn credentials. 



  4. Once signed in (or if already signed in), a dialog box displays the badge image and corresponding information with several sharing options.
    1. Share an update - This will post the badge to your LinkedIn feed. You can include optional content with the badge in the form of an update. This might include providing more context around the badge award or personal commentary. You may optionally share your update with the Public or Connections, as well as posting an update to Twitter.
    2. Send to individuals - A badge image and link to the public badge assertion page is shared as a private message.

        

Adding badges to your LinkedIn Certifications

You can also add badges to the Certification section of your LinkedIn profile. One advantage to using this approach is that the badge is persistently associated with your LinkedIn profile and does not get "lost in the feed". Adding badges to the Certification section requires some manual entry of badge information.

  1. Sign in to LinkedIn and go to your profile page.
  2. Select the Add new profile section button and expand the Accomplishments menu.

      

  3. Select Certifications and a new dialog box will open.
    1. Copy the share URL of the badge you wish to add and open it in a new window. This is the public assertion and badge verification page.
    2. Enter the information from this page on the LinkedIn dialog.

        

    3. Certification Name: Enter the badge name as shown on the badge verification page.
    4. Certification Authority: Enter the name of the badge issuer. If you see a LinkedIn page appear that matches the issuer, click it to select that issuer.
    5. License Number: Leave blank or paste the unique ID from the badge verification page URL bar that looks like: bcd41b91-a83f-4dae-a51f-cd979a6cc8b8
    6. Dates: Enter the date that appears on the badge verification page.
    7. Check the box for This certificate does not expire.
    8. Certification URL: paste the share URL of the public assertion and badge verification page.
  4. Click Save.
  5. From your LinkedIn profile, navigate to the Accomplishments section to view your badges.
