What are Badges and how do I use them?

Badges are a fun way to recognize students on their achievements within the Buzz LMS.  They are digital awards that can be presented automatically through module or assessment completion or manually by the teacher using the clipboard tool.  Students will get an alert when they earn a badge and will be able to view their badges in their gradebook.

Badges can be created at the course or domain level.

To add a badge to your course:

  1. Open the Editor using the Main Menu.
  1. Go to Course Settings by clicking the wrench icon.

Manually Assigning Badges:

  1. Open the Clipboard tool from the toolbar or Main Menu.

  3. Add the student(s), Quick Lists, and/or Groups to whom you want to award the badge using the panel on the left.
  4. Select the badge you want to award.
  5. Enter a brief message in the Badge requirements field, so the recipient(s) know why they’re receiving it; this is your chance to personalize the badge for your student(s).
  6. Click Choose File next to Attach evidence file to browse for and attach a file related to the badge (e.g., a photo of the associated project, the essay or assignment file, a screenshot showing improving performance, etc.,).
