Using the Canvas Badges Backpack

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

Using the Canvas Badges Backpack

The Canvas Badges Backpack is where you can store and fully interact with any of the Open Badges you've earned. Canvas Badges/Credentials-awarded badges will be automatically added to a user's backpack. Non-Canvas Badges/Credentials badges may be manually uploaded.

Create an account on any Canvas Badges/Credentials server (Australia, Canada, European Union, United States) to collect your badges in our free backpack service.

With a backpack, you can:

  • Store badges from any fully compliant Open Badges provider
  • Share badges to social media sites, by URL or embed
  • Organize your badges into meaningful collections

From your backpack, you can select a badge to view the badge details. When viewing the badge detail page you can:

  • Share the badge
  • Download the badge
  • Print the badge in certificate format
  • Remove the badge from your backpack
  • Access a link to view the public page of your badge
  • View the badge's JSON
