Add the Badgr LTI to Canvas
Most Canvas URLs are automatically pre-authorized — If it's not pre-authorized, Badgr will prompt you to request
If you used your Canvas email to create your Badgr account, you'll find your Badgr issuer(s) and badge(s) available in Canvas. However, issuers and badges can also be created in Canvas without a Badgr account.
Module completion requirements trigger badge awards and must be assigned to each module for which you wish to award a badge. Teacher and student roles interact best with Badgr. Custom roles are not supported.
Badgr will not award badges when using the Canvas "test student" feature as a teacher. Badgr must have access to an email address to award badges.
Currently, Badgr does not work with Blueprinted courses. Teachers will need to select the default issuer and assign badges to modules in each course.
For badges to be awarded, a badge check must be triggered from the Badges Progress page. For very large courses, such as a MOOC, we recommend triggering badges daily using the CSV export method.
Adding a badge to a module as an external tool
By adding a badge as an external tool within the module, students will be able to claim the badge while progressing through a module. This will alleviate the need to trigger badge awards from the Badges Progress page because students will be able to claim their badge within the module.
Below are listed some common issues when beginning badging in a Canvas course. If you're experiencing any of these issues, please take a look at the troubleshooting articles listed.
