We were using CanvaBadges to add badging to our courses, but it appears that CanvaBadges is no longer working. When I look at available apps in Canvas, I noticed there are two others already integrated BadgeStack and Open Badge Factory. Has anyone used these other badging tools? Any insights would be greatly appreciated!!
We are seeing only an error message and are unable to access badges from the profile, create new badges, etc.
We are going to take a look at Badgr as well. Hoping for something free, fun, and easy to use like Canva Badges!
Well guess I am in your situation and didn't know it yet. I knew it wasn't being supported but they have now even taken down the website. Guess that just moved up on my to-do list.
Hi, where are you seeing that error? I tried it just now from canvabadges.org and launching it from my course and it appeared to be working.. I don't want to leave people in a lurch so if it's broken I'd like to fix it.
That said, it is pretty much on life support :-/. I thought I had someone that wanted to take ownership but they went radio silent on me. Badgr seems like the best drop-in replacement for Canvabadges, I've spoken with the developer a couple times and he's open to dev requests if there are specific needs.
Hope that helps!
Thanks Brian. Canvabadges seems to be running again in our courses so perhaps they had an outage this morning. This takes the critical urgency out of the new badge alternative search, but good to know moving forward. We will give Badgr a shot. Appreciate the support!
No problem, I'm glad it's working now. It's running on a single Heroku instance, so it's possible the server just got overloaded or something. Glad it's running again now!
