I have read the extensive posts and viewed the video presentation on badges and setting them up. I have a question concerning the automated awarding of student badges when the requirement is met based on the settings. Could someone please explain exactly how that works? I understand that you post the badge within the module that contains the required work but am not sure how the badge actually gets awarded automatically. Thanks.

Once you go through the setup process for the badge, the javascript added to configure Canvabadges communicates with the Canvabadges server that works the magic of keeping track of who has what badges. It's handled outside of your Canvas instance. The javascript communicates with that database to show the badges.
