Award a Badge

This system does not integrate with any learning management systems (LMS). When a user has completed a course or training, it’s your responsibly to collect their email address and award them the badge.

Badge to a Single User

Log in to your WordPress site. On the sidebar you should see an “Awards” section. Click “Add New”. Some of the fields for the award:

  • Main Text Area: Reason an individual was awarded the badge. What specifically did the user do to deserve this badge. For example, “Completed Ethics training on 6th of October, 2012.”
  • Choose Badge: From the drop-down list of created badges, which badge goes with this award?
  • Email Address: the user’s email address. This must match the one they use for their backpack. Upon awarding a badge, an email is sent to the user’s email address notifying them of the award.

When you click “Publish” the user will receive an email and decide whether to accept the award or not.
