In this Canvas Credentials (Badgr) release (12 July), the Canvas Credentials (Badgr) LTI 1.3 update allows existing LTI installations to be upgraded to the newest version. Badge triggering occurs automatically once daily and users can associate a pathway within the LTI to track badge and pathway progress. Students are automatically subscribed to associated pathways based on roster enrollment. Additionally, Canvas administrators can preauthorize issuers or organization for courses to use and prevent the use of personal issuers. Paid users can award badges based on course grade and individual assignments in addition to module completion as well as set leaderboard points on badges to give badges different weights.
