Digital badges for teachers and students

Digital badges offer recognition for achievement and can motivate students and teachers to accomplish tasks and complete projects.

    Hi,

    No doubt that badges can be a good pedagogical tool and it is something we have had several (quite loud ;-) discussions about in the product department. So far, we have no concrete plans for implementing badges – but that does not mean it will not show up in the future :-). Although we have not implemented a badge feature in itslearning, there is of cause nothing stopping teachers from applying badges and other gamification elements in their teaching. A badge can be a smiley attached to a homework. Happy teaching – with or without badges :-) .

    We have developed our own system using SCORM but would love to have something truly integrated...

    As a district attempting to implement badging, it makes complete and total sense that the LMS we use-itsLearning be the vehicle for digital badges. Otherwise, the process is really too cumbersome because it requires a separate place for the badges to live.  It is disappointing that itsLearning is not moving forward with what seems to be a very positive way to reward teachers and students.

    Would love to see the integration of Certificate / Badges for students that completed the course through Itslearning. How about integration with Accredible?
