Canvas offers the ability to award badges to students when they complete modules in your course.
Before you create and award badges, you need to be a badge issuer. You only need to do this process once. If you don't see any of the images attached in this article, please reach out to the Service Desk or the EdTech team directly.
Start by navigating to one of the courses you are teaching.
In the navigation column, click on "Badges".
Don't click "Upgrade Course" yet. Instead, select "CREATE ISSUER".
In the fields enter information in accordance with who you are.
Issuer Name: Your Name
Issuer Description: Who you are, briefly
Website URL: https://snc.edu
Contact Email: Your email
Then check the agreement checkbox "I have read and agree to the Data Processing Addendum".
When you're all done, click "New Issuer".
Now, you can click "Upgrade Course", and after refreshing the page you'll see a Canvas Badges user interface.
