Buttons, Badges, and Links - Oh my!

Two Questions:

1) I'm new to Canvas as an instructor, and would like to give students two ways to earn a badge.  One would be for ungraded content like signing up for Remind 101 or reading my Communication page - in this case they would simply click on a button marked "Finis" or something similar and receive a badge with an appropriate name.

The second way would be when they turn in certain assignments or pass assessments for mastery.

I can't seem to find anything to explain how to do this.

2) How do I assign a hyperlink to a button?  For instance using buttons to navigate to outside resources or start a video, etc.

I can create my own graphics for badges and buttons, but can't seem to figure out how to apply either one.

Good afternoon, @whitepa ...

One thing you might try is the Badgr LTI external tool (app).  Here are a couple links for your review:

There are other third-party LTI tools that can be integrated with Canvas ... and some may come with a cost.  If you search for the word "badge" in the EduAppCenter website, you'll find a handful of other LTIs that you can look through.

I hope these resources will be of help to you.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
