I am using Discussions in Canvas and have setup weekly tasks for my students to participate. I'm scoring the Discussions as a "pass/fail" and providing short feedback to encourage them and let them know I'm watching. I saw a group of "badge" apps in the Settings and am trying to understand what they are and whether they would be useful to reward Discussion participation that is exemplary. While investigating the term "badge", I also ran across the term "Mission". They look like they might work, however, I cannot find a beginner's explanation for what these are and when / how to use them. Can someone provide an overview of these concepts? (!openbadge !badges !badgestack)
