Was there a presentation recently on using badges in Blackboard? If so, is there a digital recording around?
If not, are any of you using the Achievements function in Bb, with either certificates or badges (but mostly badges)? How are you working badges into your curriculum?
I used Achievement in my Blackboard training course for faculty this summer. I used Achievements more as as a checklist for students to keep track of what they accomplished, so I wouldn't have to keep them up to date. It worked great. I loved how Achievements combined the capabilities of a checklist with the gratification of badges.
I will continue to use badges for this upcoming course.
