I passed my Milestone Certified Design Engineer (MCDE) assessment and was awarded with a badge that they said I could add to my canvas account. I tried adding it multiple times and nothings working. It doesn't give me a URL I can use so exporting it directly is the only way. I created an account and signed in. Made sure the emails matched and nothing. Any have any idea why it's not adding the badge to my account?

Hi There!

Great question.  I'm going to share some guides and some information that I hope might help.

Uploading non-Canvas Badges/Credentials badges to a backpack.  This guide has step-by-step instructions for how to take a badge that you've earned elsewhere and add it to your Canvas Badges/Credentials backpack.  A key element to keep in mind is that in order for this to work, the badges must be "Open Badges."  Here's a document explaining what Open Badges are and a great resource to help determine whether a badge in question is indeed an Open Badge.  If it's NOT an Open Badge, then you will, unfortunately, not be able to add it to your Canvas Badges/Credentials backpack.

I hope that this helps!
