I took my first instructional course this morning and before I could click on the link to the badge it was gone. What are badges, why would I want them and is it possible to recover a badge once the link is gone? Thanks for the help.
Steve, it sounds like your questions are for a specific course (possibly offered by your Institution or the Canvas Network?). This is the global Canvas Community so we don't have access to your specific course to know why the link to the badge disappeared or whether you can recover it or not. For this information you'd want to contact the Instructor of the course or the person in charge of the course. If you're not sure how to do this, click on the Help link in Canvas and "Report a Problem."
In general you collect Badges to show that you've gained a skill(s) and/or learned information. For more information on what digital badges are see the following resource - Digital Badges — MacArthur Foundation
Hope this helps!
