Badgr for Canvas

Did you know that Canvas now has Badges powered by Badgr? With the integration of Badgr, instructors and students can now benefit from badging capability within every course!

Badges are an exciting addition to Canvas and the educational landscape at large. Not only does Badgr allows instructors to monitor and illustrate student achievements in new ways, but from a student perspective, badges are a unique way to visually ascertain the skills and learning outcomes they are mastering within their courses.

Per Instructure’s announcement, “With Badgr now native to Canvas, teachers can effortlessly create badges within Canvas, and associate those badges with the completion of modules in their course. Teachers will be able to easily see the progress of students in their course and export badging data. Additionally, students can view a privacy-protected class leaderboard to see how they compare to their classmates.”
