Hello All, 

I am working on motivating faculty with more extrinsic opportunities through certifications and badging. I have some ideas for certifications (e.g. online teaching), but I wanted to know how others are using badging in Canvas and the mechanism you are using to award these badges? In other words, where do they appear to users, in Canvas, in a portal? I would also love if you could share your ideas about badges like what do your users have to do to earn them? What names you use? What "weight" do these credentials have at your respective institutions? I am trying to be as creative as possible in launching this microcredentialing project. Thanks for your sharing your ideas and advice!
