This is a great supplemental resource to extend your badging course you're offering, @jward . Thanks for offering the course and for continuing to help others understand through collaborative learning how to find success in cultivating their own badging ecosystems.
@jward , can badges be set-up to reward actions in Canvas? I am thinking of encouraging engagement and as part of an orientation to Canvas programme, e.g. First Person to Start a Discussion, Completed First Quiz, Set-up Profile, Submitted Assignment at least 24hrs before Deadline...
I appreciate that gamification — at the least — can help force instructors to think about concrete learning objectives. Creating a badging system that is less about "collecting" and diverse enough to attract different types of gamers is something I still haven't see a great example of (in education). Any leads?
